Yes. Either its a required kernel boot arg, or else perhaps a patch
is required to work around some hardware quirk. Who knows. In any
case, this is more of a matter for the kernel-image-* packages than
boot-floppies, so any bugs should go there.

You ran out of space during the "install kernel and modules" step?
Or else something went nuts and used up all your disk space?

Yes, if you can still reproduce this in 3.0.12, and it's not just
"disk full" problems, then you should file a bug agianst
boot-floppies. Please include the /var/log/messages file too.

Probably fixed in the more recent boot-floppies, there were wget problems.
