dbootstrap is the new name of the dinstall program in the boot-floppies. It 
has been renamed because there is another dinstall in Debian (the one which 
installs packages on the FTP server).

But the change was only partly done in 'slink'. It has just been completed for 
'potato'. So, when diging through 'slink' sources, expect to meet several 
dinstall which should be dbootstrap.
