Bug#240109: install: Installer puts wrong kernel in boot partition [powerpc-newworld]

Package: install
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I used the installer downloaded thru jigdo today (3/25/2004) to install
to an unused partition on my iMac. It booted fine, ran like a champ,
very nice work! It didn't write a bootloader, which I thought was odd
but I soon found out why.

I booted my old system, took a look at the boot partition on the new
system and saw the kernel was an apus kernel. The shortcut was
vmlinuz, not vmlinux as it has been in the past, and pointed to the
apus vmlinuz kernel which had been installed. I haven't actually tried
manually booting this kernel -- it doesn't look right!
