Hmm... You seem to need some basic Debian dependency handling info. I think you should go to http://www.debian.org/devel/ (Or http://www.nl.debian.org/devel/) Start with http://www.nl.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/ Then move at leat to http://www.nl.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/ http://www.nl.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ and read these fine documents for the developers and developers-to-be. If these are too technical, you may want to read some Debian specific user oriented intro guides like mine: http://www.nl.debian.org/doc/user-manuals#quick-reference Also this is for new d-i, another intro for playing with installer media by me may be useful for handling disk image files. http://people.debian.org/~osamu/hackdi > I need to know every file and enviroment variable that is the bare > necessities for it to run on the cd.

Wow, ... this will be nice but may not be so trivial as I see how people are developing boot loader. You can certainly build chroot in installer initrd type system but that only gives partial test of installer. > It might be that I could read out most of it from the source, but I > don't know where to find the source for bootstrap As others has suggested use "apt-get source" if you know the name of the source.
