Well, yes. It installs (somehow...) the system. However, currently
potato has no useful install floppies. I think that's more than
only a slight problem. That's a biggie...
So now, I've installed my system with sid. It works perfectly
now (witn 2.4.13-pre5), but quite a lot of all time stamps are
broken. 2.2.19 isn't fixed wrt epoch handling. It's simply broken.
For my system, 2.2.19 comes up in 2048. I've just send a bug
report to the kernel image team...
