Note that this applies to any CD made with debian-cd, since it makes the 
.disk/info file, even when it says it's an unofficial image.

That would be great... I don't know if you can use my work, I hacked up the 
debian-cd boot-<arch> scripts pretty bad to get the images smaller, and also 
to allow boot-image-flavor selection for BIOSes that support ElTorito 
alternate boot images. For some silly reason, the boot-<arch> scripts copy 
the boot disk images into an 'install' directory, even though it's completely 
possible to boot from the copies in dists/woody/main/disks-i386/current/ - 
Does anyone know why it does this? It's a pretty big waste of space, imo.

You can find my hacked version at http://people.debian.org/~ieure/netinst/ 
... it currently doesn't work properly with b-f 3.0.19, that will be fixed as 
soon as I have a new netinst release prepared... Later tonight or over the 
weekend, I imagine.
