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...
