For Debian to support MILO in the sarge installer, we would need someone
to be willing to create a milo package for Debian (probably based on
Linux 2.0 sources) that will build from source using only tools in main,
and provide milo binaries for each of the alpha subarchitectures that
will be supported.  If you can get this far, I can easily help you with 
the rest of the integration process.
