I don't see any real objection to adding only a netboot image, except maybe that it may proof too hard to find for users. So at the very least a very good wiki page should be written that includes a link. If anybody else has fundamental objections, I guess this would be a good time to voice them! The fairly trivial patch below is required to add 686-bigmem udebs. Not sure why generic_serial is missing in 686-bigmem. Could be a minor config "error" in linux-2.6. Instead of the first patch (for testing) you can also just do: rm linux-kernel-di-i386-2.6/modules/i386/serial-modules It would be nice if you could build those, dump them in localudebs, and see if you can figure out what changes are needed in the config dir to add only netboot images for that kernel (if you've never really looked at that it can be a nice challenge; AFAICT changes should only be needed below the installer/build/config dir). Feel free to ask for help if needed.
