I managed to hand-hold it through an init=/bin/sh install long enough to reprogram the
tulip srom and flash in nettrom 2.3.3 and from there on it was plain sailing...

Woody is now happily installing! Apart from a few minor tidbits...[1]

Thanks a lot to  debian-arm and debian-boot folk and you!


The debian-arm installation notes have a todo item on specifying
how to tell Nettrom to boot Debian. I only had to change
kernfile to be "/vmlinuz".

update-menus is segfaulting
