Cool.  BTW, don't ever be worried about criticizing what I've done, or
how I'm doing it.  I have a *very* think skin.  I like criticism.

Ego is unimportant; an excellent Install Manual is what is important.

Hmm.  I'd rather you owned the Alpha section.  The thing is that I own
the flow and the structure.  That's why it seems easiest to me if you
take little chunks and feed those to me, we throw it all in the pot,
and go from there.  I don't want to have to map radically different
documents on to each other, it's a PITA.  But if you feed me, like,
sections or subsections, that's the best.

Right now the chunks I think we should start with are the hardware
tables and partitioning instructions.  After that, we'll attack
MILO/SRM and all that booting jazz.

BTW, I hang out on #debian-devel quite a bit, esp. weekends and
evenings (NYC time).
