Glad to hear it.  Let me know if you don't have an account on
cvs.debian.org and you want a debian-boot pserver account.  You can
crypt a username/password with my Debian PGP key (aph@debian.org) and
send it to me privately and I can create that.

Wait a minute... you don't have a kernel nor a boot-disk?  How do
people boot?
