glitches? My main working machine got installed Potato (or was it Hamm?)
and I am dist-upgrading since then (running unstable now). Do I miss
things compared to pure Sarge install?

that was clear.

cool. I didn't know it would ask me. I did that and installed something
in 3 minutes. Now I'll copy it over to a harddisk somehow but what next?
Do I need to run some kind of post-install script? Or will certain
kernel parameter do that for me? Does the /native-install script mean
that I should run it?

Looks like you let it execute something else than a m68k binary. What's
your host hardware? And did you use aranym 0.9.0 as found in debian,
