Including it in beta 2 will surely help the install reports.

Network install works (at least for me) from netboot-image.img, which
is _not_ provided from ftp.debian.org (but the CVS code creates it).
CD images could be made from cdrom-imitrd.gz and vmlinux there,
plus arcboot and some magic shell script. This is still untested.
The cdrom-image.img is useless, it shouldn't be created.

AFAIH it's close to autobuilding now.
