Ok, that's understandable, but not really a boot-floppies bug in that
case.  The boot-floppies system is really designed with a specific
kernel in mind.  There is no way we can do otherwise.

Now, that is not to say that I think potato should drop kernel 2.0.x
support.  Not at all.  Therefore, I think this bug needs to be refiled
to the offending package, e2fsprogs, I believe...
