Good, that's what I thought. I'm working on building etch-m68k and 
sid cd images. If you can wait a bit, then those should be able to
accomodate you. If you want to roll your own in the meantime
<http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller> has a section called "Creating
CD images and CD/DVD related stuff."

Christian: are those patches headed for or already in your standard 
debian kernels?
