Severity: whishlist

        The installation process of Debian should allow for a more
        sofisticated installation of the lilo configuration files this

        - setting other partitions as bootable (other OS) asking for
          label (using the partition as label)
        - add parameters to the kernel (recommended only to sysadmins)
          through "append=3D"
        - set password on bootup
        - set default image to boot
        - set vga mode to step to
        - check for kernels installed and offer to make a label for each
          kernel installed. For example, make a label like:

          image =3D /boot/vmlinuz-2.0.34
          root =3D /dev/hdb3
          vga =3D normal
          label =3D Linux-2.0.34

 boot-floppies (3.0.21) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Adam Di Carlo
     - we now build against Woody
       THIS IS A SERIOUS CHANGE but required for Woody release.
       If packages from unstable are needed, you will need to copy those to
       localdir as configured in `config'
     - sparc uses libc 2.2.5 now
     - sparc/sun4u kernel uses 2.4.18 (thanks BenC)
     - sparc doesn't have sun4dm-pci anymore, no one needs it (thanks BenC)
     - EXTRACT-i18n was pulling in for all arches cfdisk-utf8, which would
       break sparc build
     - package searching in 'archive' dir (where downloads go) is sensitive
       to the current architecture, making it safe to share the download dir
       for multiple arch builds if desired
   * Giuseppe Sacco
     - new maintainer for the italian translation
     - updated scripts/rescue/messages/it/*
     - updated utilities/dbootstrap/po/it.po
     - translated README-Users.it.m4
   * Richard Hirst
     - fix inverted test on USE_LANGUAGE_CHOOSER in rootdisk.sh
     - ia64: turn on USE_LANGUAGE_CHOOSER
     - ia64: move vars from make/ia64.rules to make/ia64.vars
     - boxes.c, remove redundant cast, caused gcc warning on 64 bit
     - we need to copy libraries if not doing library reduction
     - ia64: avoid extra linux*.bin file entries in md5sum.txt
     - revert part of the linux.bin change, cannot have linux.bin.gz on an
       msdos format rescue.bin image - now have linux.bin or linux.gz
     - m68k: avoid extra linux*.bin entries in md5sum.txt
     - ia64: add support GPT partition tables, and include parted to
       manage them
     - hppa: turn on USE_LANGUAGE_CHOOSER
     - hppa: avoid extra linux*.bin entries in md5sum.txt
   * Andreas Wüst
     - fix misspelling in German Version-Info, closes: #136842
   * Falk Hueffner
     - fixed mklibs.py to auto-detect ldlib string from the build environment
     - disabled language chooser for Alpha because of space constraints
     - disabled APB firmware support. There are no testers, and alternative
       firmware is available (SRM)
   * Jordi Mallach
     - updates to Catalan dbootstrap translation and documentation.
     - more manual updates (Antoni Bella)
   * Eduard Bloch
     - switched to 2.4.18-bf2.4 on i386/bf2.4
     - new cdrom autodetection code, really closes: #123948, #133935
     - updated german translation
     - rearanged order of steps in rootdisk.sh; now dbootstrap
       dependencies are reduced with all others, and resolveable libs are
       copied trough the libreduction, where possible
     - set cfdisk-utf8 dependency per arch, rootdisk.sh modifications to use
       the both versions
     - user-friendly LILO menu setup, including a warning about LILO security;
       IMHO enough to say, closes: #27007
     - added kernel features check in get_fs_type
     - made old ext2 and reiserfs compatibility prompts appear in verbose mode only
     - moved from del_loop/set_loop to external losetup program. Still no idea
       why the kernel breaks on our functions, but having losetup on BFs is
       better though. Closes: #135504 and partially #110717
   * Petter Reinholdtsen
     - canonicalize messages, closes: #136904, #137076
     - define LANGUAGE_INST in dbootstrap_settings

     - s390: required newer s390-tools because of a changed DASD API version
       in kernel 2.4.17
     - s390: disable DASD API version check when recognizing partitions
     - s390: sleep 3 seconds after configuring the interfaces in netsetup
