Option to install graphics card firmware during install

Would it be possible to offer an option for graphics adapter firmware installation during the install?

That way it would start immediately into the gui, instead of dropping to shell and leaving you with a problem.

I did this the hard way, once I knew what was required, before the end of install reboot, and it worked out a lot better than the first install attempt.

My graphics adapter is a Radeon HD 7700/7800 Series and needed the firmware-amd-graphics package.

It would be a very good feature, IMHO. Newbies and experts alike will benefit.
