I would suggest to use a 2.6 kernel. On my RiscPC, 2.6.0-rmk2 together with 
all the patches I submitted to rmk's patch system does a good job. For 
instance the keyboard is working properly also in XFree86. And with a slight 
modification to the fbdev driver to make use of the rgb offset, I can even 
use 16 and 32bpp for X. And sooner or later you have to move to 2.6 anyway.

Not really, I just used it for a fresh woody install to upgrade to sid, and 
everything went ok.

I would like to help you with d-i for the RiscPC. I f you give me some help 
for a start, I could do that.
