I believe we can generate etch-m68k cds. It wasn't done before because
we were hoping to have a plan to update etch-m68k. So far, we haven't
done much updating or much planning. :)

Frankly, I haven't seen a large demand for install cds. Is there any
reason to build a whole set or just the little ones?

Hopefully that will be fixed before we build 2.6.25 for m68k. I won't
move d-i to using 2.6.25 in sid until it is.
