I'm booting the 2.0.35 kernel from the avanti boot disk (just dd'd the 
bootdisk to my boot partition) and have the dpkg problems. So either
the kernel is wrong/unpatched or there is some other problem.

Also, I found that milo 2.1.13 (the newest I found) wouldn't even
compile so I had no chance to try a newer kernel yet.
