kullervo is online again, with only the 250GB disk.  I used the debian-sid
iso from Stephen (are you listening?  I guess this counts as being tested
now).  I only had to do minor modifications (uncompressing the kernel-image,
adding info files to be able to click through).  Using the AmiCDFS2 driver,
I could finish the installation with the CD-Rom.  Using the hd-media method
did not work, the installer would not find the iso image on the harddisk.

kullervo:~# cat /etc/debian_version 
kullervo:~# uname -a
Linux kullervo 2.6.26-1-amiga #1 Thu Oct 16 08:59:25 CDT 2008 m68k GNU/Linux

So its running lenny now, but there are not a lot of packages on the netinst
iso. Is there is lenny or even better squeeze mirror? On debian-ports I only
see sid/unstable, which is maybe a little too new for a buildd?

Thanks for the links to the power supplies, I should give it a try.
