No. I tried the 2.3.4 set earlier today, and a BusyBox bug
prevented the permissions from being set correctly. Please see
http://bugs.debian.org/99627 for a description of the problem and
a fix. We'll need another BusyBox revision. Erik, may I suggest
that we include the fix to this problem *only* to prevent further
Also, the af_packet.o module was not included on the compact
floppies root disk, so I still had to use the driver floppies.
And both panes of the timezone configuration form showed the
selections in blue, making it difficult to tell which pane was
focused. I also noticed some errors during debootstraps run, but
they scrolled by pretty quickly (exim had some kind of problem
opening a logfile, for instance).
I'm currently downloading the 42 megabytes of packages required
to build the boot-floppies over a 14.4k modem, and then I'll start
tracking these down.
