It works. 'nough said.

Dunno. I'm kind of satisfied with the current setup, except for the way
apm and debian scripts interact (BAD).
Also, what about these subtle PCMCIA issues?

or does it break anything for you?

When I'm done cleaning up what I'm doing, should be fairly stable,
unless we also want to include mkfs.ext2 and fsck.ext2.

My own setup was starting from the zaurus-debian big image
and installing lots of stuff on top. It requires a 512MB CF or bigger,
plus a NFS server for extra stuff (docs, /var/lib/dpkg, etc.)
and isn't stable yet (biggest issue being kapmd), and I haven't tested X
(what server do you use? can you post configuration files?),
so it isn't a good idea for a release.

I'm all for releasing a bootimage next week.
As for rootfs, I am not ready, but if you are, way to go!
