2.2 and 2.4 kernels will not be part of etch. They will be removed from the
installer and there will no be (official) kernel/linux images in etch. We
discussed this here a while ago, and we decided to drop 2.2. and 2.4 from
d-i to make arch requalification possible again, and d-i developement, a
little easier. This means, unless you have an Amiga or a Mac Q840AV, you
need to install sarge and upgrade from there.

Dropping support for 2.2/2.4 from glibc is something else, though. But
without TLS, whatever that is, we will be kicked out again as soon as etch
is released...
