Dear John, congratulations!

I finally managed to install Debian on my Opteron system (well, not entirely
but the rest shouldn't be a problem now) thanks to your new DFS
version. After loading sata_sil module and mounting my disk base
system installed without any trouble. I was also able to install the
kernel from CD with help of dpkg-repack using --arch=amd64 switch. That's
really neat!  But as I was installing the kernel to a SATA  disk and
SATA support was in modules on CD I wasn't able to boot it. I guess
using initrd just like with normal Debian kernels would solve the
problem. Is there any special reason for not using initrd on DFS?
