I did a debconf-get-selections with and without the --installer option and don't see any nagios or nrpe preseed entries.

I don't care which config file the installer uses if any, since I am going overwrite it later anyway - I just want NRPE and other software (dhcp server is another example) with this same problem installed without any questions.

How do suppress this question?

================================================== ============
Configuration file `/etc/nagios/nrpe.cfg'
==> File on system created by you or by a script.
==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.
What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
Y or I : install the package maintainer's version
N or O : keep your currently-installed version
D : show the differences between the versions
Z : background this process to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** nrpe.cfg (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?
================================================== ============

Thanks for any help.
