Actually, that whole section of code needs to be ripped out of d-i.
tilo isn't used at all for sparc boot cds, only the kernels and initrd
images are used by silo from the cd. Separte initrd images need to be
built for sparc32 and sparc64.
The tilo images are pseudo-floppies that are not of any use to the
sparc boot cd, and are apparently built only to look more like
architectures that use psuedo-floppies on boot cds.
Also, the mkiso options in that section are totally wrong for sparc
Currently, I'm running into problems with modutils.
I don't see any point in submitting patches until I at least have a
hand-built boot cd working, unless I am pretty sure the code won't
need to be reworked again.
