Re: Debian 5.0 armel installation question
First trap versatile image is initramfs and not initrd. So I integrated
the cpio archive into my kernel and booted the Debian installer. But it
is really netboot. The first thing it makes is to detect network
hardware. Then networking will be configured so first packages are
downloaded from one of the mirrors. I don't find any option to make
installation from the CD/DVD. What is the main difference between
"cdrom" and "netboot" versions? Can it be configured within cpio via
changing some scripts or so?

For Etch I used initrd.gz from netwinder, but as far as I understand it

What you want is a versatile image:
See the unnoficial howto:
My (limited) impression is that the netboot image should support any debian cd/dvd
image available, as long as the kernel and bootloader initrd have already been loaded
via other means.
