Will d-i work with a 2.6 kernel? I remember some complaints in that
direction at one point, but I never heard if it was resolved.

I'll see if I can get a cross-compiler going in OSX. I really only
have time on the train to work, and I can't bring myself to trust
Linux on a relatively new PowerBook at this point. I was looking at
the code in preparation for some fixes, but I'm pretty short on free
time these days. I certainly have enough old Macs laying around to
test most of the major hardware types. I think a 68k PowerBook is
the only big category missing from my collection.
