Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.10
Severity: normal


i read through the installation manual and found some glitches or things
which should be improved. i already mailed it to the b-f mailinglist, adam
told me to file a bug, so here it is:
the boot floppies i used were 2.2.10 and used the documentation which was
accompanied with these b-fs.


what i missed in the install docs for installing debian on an
alpha is the description of BSD disklabels. what is it for,
what's the theory and such things that one can imagine what
he/she has to configure. i couldn't have partitioned the harddisk
without knowing bsd disklabels from *BSD ... also a little
example would be nice in the docs how this should look like at
the end.
furthermore i am/was quite confused about the aboot stuff what
the story behind this was. should i leave some megs for it or
not? should they be within an partiton or should the first
partition start right after the non-partitioned space for aboot
... some one else answered me the question but well i couln't
have figured this out on my own.
and there is also a bug in the pdf versions of th einstall guide.
in point 5.2 is a listing of the   various subarchs and the i
mages which should be in there, so, alpha has many subarchs and
the list is pretty long but the long list doesn't get break up at
the end of the text, i.e. is just one long line.
another thing which puzzled me was that under the subarch dir
resc14440.bin etc. should be (if i read the docs) but actually,
the most i can find is just milo.bin, so what's the magic behind


Note: forget the system information below.

so long

I think this has been made sufficiently clear in the woody
installation manual:


If not, please complain :)
