These bugs were closed by boot-floppies 2.2.3, now in unstable.

.....Adam Di Carlo....adam@onShore.com.....<URL:http://www.onShore.com/>

boot-floppies (2.2.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * busybox: updated to 0.40; fix logger; remove free (use lazybox free
    instead, which is better)
  * dbootstrap: 'expert' boot argument skips some annoying confirmation
    dialog boxes; fix kbdconfig dialog being too big; fix the 'list'
    archive selection method for installing kernel; more debugging and
    informative messages piped to syslog; on i386, install mbr using
    /sbin/install-mbr; for m68k, fix keyboards; when doing 'list' method
    of disk or mounted archive location selection, just do it if we only
    have one possibility
  * root: add lazybox 'man' command, reminding users to install man-db pkg
  * debian/copyright: remove old FSF address; add/re-organize busybox,
    lowmemrd, dbootstrap copyright information (lintian)
  * debian/control: standards version 3.1.1; depend on gcc, file; change
    priority to extra
  * debian/rules: debhelperify; binary package contains the tarball
    /usr/src/boot-floppies.tar.gz, rather than the unpacked files in
  * i18n: Hungarian, Russian, French, Portuguese updates
  * powerpc: add amiga-fdisk to base and root
  * close bugs from last release (closes: Bug#52073, Bug#41193, Bug#30959)
  * we split root/boot now, maybe we'll do initrd or some such for woody,
    but lets close this bug (closes: Bug#40160)
  * README clarifications (closes: Bug#41189)
