Bug#67888: boot-floppies: netwinder/arm port shouldn't ask about maintaining 2.0 compatability

Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A
Severity: wishlist

The debian installer for potato worked just fine on the netwinder, one I
convinced it to tftp boot the provided netwinder-rescue image.  One hitch
though -- the question about maintaining 2.0 compatability for the ext2 fs
should be removed and forced to "yes".  Answering "no" causes the netwinder's
firmware (which is just a stripped down linux kernel) to be unable to read the
filesystem -- so it is unable to boot the system.  Not that big a deal though.
