I'll defer to an amiga expert. If there's a problem, let me know and
we'll document it at least. Note I believe that you do need to gunzip 2.6 
kernels on amiga.

I'm not sure what you mean by updated. ;)

Everything of interest should be linked from [0]. You probably want to
read through that.

I generally recommend using the daily installer and installing
etch-m68k. Lenny isn't installable (yet). You never know how
installable sid is.
