I wonder if adding debian-installer/framebuffer=false as a kernel
parameter would help the 2.4 install.

I wish I had your feedback a month ago. I will add back the 2.2 kernel for
atari. I've been thinking about reorganizing things anyway.

I'm not sure it will release. I'm not even sure the new atari kernel will 
make the release, since rc1 is already built. However, the daily builds 
aren't going anywhere and will eventually make it into a release, perhaps 
as a point release. That's what I hope will happen with vme.
