m68k debian-installer call for testers

Debian-installer has gotten to the point on m68k that it's ready for a
few more people than me to try to break it. Ideally, we'd like d-i to
work before beta 3 gets released in a few weeks.

I've only tested d-i with a mac Centris 650 running kernel 2.2.25 (2.4
kernels don't work on the mac). I'd like to see some other macs and 
amigas make a test run or two.

I'm working on supporting atari and the vmes, but it'd be nice to know
that someone out there cares enough to test, otherwise I may not build
dailies for those subarchs. 

Installation instructions can be found at 

might also be useful. Additionally, the mac ram disks require you to use
ramdisk_size=20000 as a kernel parameter. I intend to minimize that later, 
but for now, I doubt you can do an install in less than 40MB (my box has
136MB and that's the only testing I know of).

My daily builds can be found at 

The nativehd ram disk loads everything from the net. The cdrom ram disk
loads everything from cdrom.

Hopefully we'll have official cdroms before too long at

Don't bother trying to install a distribution other than unstable.

Please file success and failure bug reports. 

It would also be nice if someone could work on the documentation.

mailing list.
