The installation kernel *only* has to support your network card, your disks 
and a simple text mode display.  After all, one of the first things you're 
going to have to do when your fresh system boots up is compile a new 
kernel .....  so don't necessarily judge which Debian flavour to use by the 
installation kernel alone.
