'''Question''': Is the DebianInstaller project not going to use PGI because PGI only works for i386 ?

'''Answer''': PGI works not only in i386 but in other architectures, like ["IA64"], too - I've read this in PGI documentation. From http://www.progeny.com/products/pgi/guide.html#id2781733 :
{{{
 PGI is architecture-independent and has been designed for
 portability. In its first release, PGI supports the Intel x86
 and IA-64 architectures. Hooks are in place for developers on
 other architectures to add support for their platforms without
 having to make infrastructural changes to PGI.

'''Question''': Is the DebianInstaller going to graphical in nature?

'''Answer''': The DebianInstaller will not be graphical by nature, but modularity is a key in his design. It would allow the use of different kinds of frontends, including those of a graphical nature.
