Preferrably the "guilty" udeb ;) but if you don't know, just file them
on "install".

I don't know if the slang frontend has been added to the package lists
yet. I would of course like my newt frontend to be the default instead.

The kernel thing sounds weird... Are you sure you're not confusing it
with SYSLINUX 2.00? Rest assured though, it IS a 2.4.19 kernel. :)

Uh, sounds weird...

Because netinst only has d-i and base on them... We should talk to the
debian-cd team about including the necessary things for kernel-installer
included too, and probably grub as well, so the netinst CD can be used
for everything until the reboot...

Thanks for your comments!
