kernel-image-2.4.25-powerpc-pmac appears to be on CD 9 (!). debian-cd,
is there some way that this can be made more sensible, if this hasn't
already been done since 20040502? We shouldn't have 2.4.20 on CD 1, nor
kernel-image-*-smp-*, as base-installer won't install either. At the
very least kernel-image-2.4.25-powerpc-pmac should be added, as that's
probably the most common of the possible targets.

We'll want to add 2.6.5 at some point too I think, but I don't know how
much other stuff that'll push off CD 1 ...
