Did not know about that, I will use it from now on. Originally I
just wanted to install (not test) the netinstall images. The
webpage just says:

Official net install images for the "testing" release

    * Official "testing" images, built weekly, in two sizes
    * ("businesscard" = 40 MB, "netinst" = 80 MB). It is not possible to
    * use these images to install the stable release.

          The images are only intended for testing the new installer for
	  sarge. The installer is still under development, so the
	  installation may fail.

I think that this form should be mentioned there, as this netinstall
CD page is the natural place to stumble over these images.

Is it hard to make CDs directly from cvs (is there some kind
of automatical build process or must the parts be assembled by

Is there some general explanation of the new installer architecture?
