Thanks all the same. Could you please elaborate a bit more, and explain
why this is a bad idea ? Out of hand i only see lazyness on your part to

build on your G5, and naturally another run of NEW queue waiting. But
apart from that, what is the real problem ?

And you still don't understand that getting oldworld 2.6 testing in
debian installer is not something that will happen overnight, so we
can't wait weeks for an eventual 2.6 kernel small enough to fit on
miboot floppies. Ideally, this should be ready for next week, since we
are now working on thight schedule for the debian-installer and sarge
