worked fine on powerpc for me. (bootp network config, NFS install of
kernel and modules, http install of base)

the debootstrap progress dialog still sucks though, it stops on
`extracting whiptail...' and never changes until debootstrap finishes
and then the box is popped.   users will no doubt think something is
br0ke and do drastic things to make it broken.
