Re: debian-installer kernel (what is ./make-kernel-control?)

This may be user error, I'm not sure, but the di kernel didn't want to build for
me. Is make-kernel-control a script that should be in cvs?

mkdir -p kernel-source-2.4.0/debian
./make-kernel-control 2.4.0 di \
make: ./make-kernel-control: Command not found
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 127
debuild: fatal error at line 293:
dpkg-buildpackage failed: Illegal seek

Another thing.  The stuff I have in debian-installer/build that is making boot
floppies doesn't use an initrd, I'm looking into fixing that.
