maybe i was just "buzzworded" by the "woody" and copied the rest of that
text into a "belongs to woody" context.

You might want to move the link to the bottom of the list and make it
read "for the rest read on the >woody< page" . I guess then it'd be
clear that both apply here. 

Yet the more important part would be to link that page to some more
popular space. I had looked thru all the d-i install manuals i could
find and hadn't spotted only one link to this valuable page. 

Thus if you could also add which initrd images are which purpose, then
that'd be all you need for installing m68k.

Best regards,
