comment rsync all files of remote machine over SSH without root user?
This is one of the better solutions as it doesn't need any reconfiguration on the other end -- just needs the askpass installed and X forwarding enabled, both of which should be fairly common.

comment Preseed.cfg ignoring host setting
I've also used this but with a slight modification so that the hostname is automatically set from a DNS lookup: d-i pressed/late_command string in-target /bin/bash -c 'echo $(dig +short -x $(facter ipaddress)) | sed -e \'s/\.$//\' > /etc/hostname'. This uses "facter" from puppetlabs to get the IP address but you could do something similar using ip addr and sed.

@Mike ext4 is fine on ppc (at least at the time of writing, which is quite a bit later than your comment)
