Well woody has certainly been migrated to http://archive.debian.org/.

I'd expect the sarge installer to just work, but it's also at archive now
so who knows. The etch installer got broken when etch got renamed to 
etch-m68k. I was using the lenny installer (dailies) to installer etch-m68k, 
but the mirror choosing code seems to be broken last time I tried.

My notes are at <http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/M68k>.

Hmmmm. Looks like I did something to kill the daily buildds. I better go 
fix that.
