I think we should create $filesystem-module-udebs for most of the
architectures. This includes hfs for powerpc, *fat/ntfs for intel based
machines, ffs for some *bsd based archs and so on. With those modules,
we can extend the fstab generation process to include such foreign
partitions into the newly installed system.

Sven and I have fixed this in Oldenburg. This means the new uploaded
kernel 2.4.22 included unix sockets compiled in. (Sven when we can
expect th upload? :-))
