If they would have been in the linx-m68k CVS, they would be in the kernel
images now. I don't think I will have time this year to add any more m68k
patches, so if somebody else wants to test and commit them to the debian
linux-2.6 svn, go ahead.

But I am pretty sure you can boot the installer with a custom kernel instead
of what is on the CDs. Thats what I tried with the atari, as longs as you
have all drivers you need built in it should work.
