Well, that sounds promising.

I don't know anything about it, but you can try using
dists/oldstable/main/disks-alpha/current/tftpboot.img, which would be a
tftp image from woody.  If that one *does* work, though, I'm not sure what
to do about the newer image, since that again seems to be a Multia-specific
problem, and maybe not the same problem as with the CDs.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
