I booted the image on some i386 servers: Dell PE1650 (original) and
PE2650 (A21 BIOS), IBM x330 (original) and an HS20 blade (BIOS 1.09).
Each went all right with the default option, but looking for the
qla2xxx firmware took long, I wonder where it was looking for it.
Also, "adding live session user" took more then a minute under QEMU.
And I found the "prerequisites for installing Debian" a little strange
on an isolinux help screen.
Very nice work, altogether, I really hope to use it in our server
