I did it once, cause I didn't know that I could use the Atari root.bin
then (it was before common was there) I used the watchtower stuff to
get a root.bin system running. It didn't work right away and I had a
problem with the init scripts from watchtower beeing incompatible with
debian. Its not easy to do, but its possible. Of cause using dinstall
is much easier and the prefered way.
