Is the iso fixed as well? I used this
875051085ccfea30c88a7eb1edaa0c32  /scratch/zola/burn/cdrom-mini.iso

one from your site, and it looked quite buggy:

a)I quickly noted an error "unmounting /initrd failed"

b)For many, if not all, net-modules, I get a red warning box telling
  me, that modprobe -v NAME has failed, with NAME in via82cxxx, trm290,

c)Pressing Alt-Leftarrow, I see scrolling messages:
  tail /var/log/syslog: No such file or directory
  tail: no file

d)One console further, I see for every module load attempt:
  insmod: Unhandled relocation error of type 10 for .text
  (repeated several times)

  unresolved symbols
  insmod: faild to load NAME

e)The segfaults after selecting any network modules are still present

d)The language in the first run selecting network adapters is now
  german, but from the second round on is english 

e)I cannot officially quit the installation: Selcting "none" as
  network adapters asks for a driver disk, which then brings me back to
  the selection of the adapter.

f)Since module loading did not work, and no aic7xxx module was present, I
  could not check if the fix provided there indeed works.

I got the kernel source from your site and will try building my own
kernel over the next days.
