The current status is that we don't have a working kernel for
d-i.  All other packages (udebs) are build, but I can't really
test them without a working kernel.

The 2.4 kernel doesn't have support for devfs on amd64.
It looks like it's corrupting memory and therefor disabled.
Because we don't have devfs support we can't mount the initrd.

We're now looking into using a 2.6 kernel for it, but have no
idea if d-i is going to work with it in the first place.
