comment What's the difference between /sbin/nologin and /bin/false
I just checked both Ubuntu 8.04 and 14.04. The nologin command exits with status 1 similar to false, and none of true, false, or nologin are included in /etc/shells. If they were, a user could use chsh to select such a shell and lock himself out of his account.

comment Preseeding Ubuntu installation so it uses all the disk
@Braiam Well, if my answer is no longer valid, I can always delete it, but I don't have time to try and recreate a VM and preseed an Ubuntu install to verify what is and is not needed or if any changes are required. The original poster wanted a completely automatic install with partitions being wiped. I don't know if any of those lines can be removed without breaking a completely automatic install of Ubuntu. Feel free to take over ownership if you would like to.

comment Preseeding Ubuntu installation so it uses all the disk
@Braiam Possibly, but this answer is 4 years old now. It's been quite a while since I've had to work with preseeded installs. All I know is that if a question is asked, and not preseeded, then the user will have to manually answer it during the install. The OP said he wanted the entire install unattended and language is a question that is asked during install.

@Anthon Point taken. That was a link to a file on my own website, but I moved it's location slightly. I've updated the link and added the complete contents of the file as well.
