Then the manifest is wrong. And vmlinuz is not bootable "as is". You
must modify it to make it an etherboot file or a PXE boot file.

You does not need to modify vmlinuz for netboot. You may use something like syslinux to boot it.

You're right.
Then why does the make netboot produce a mini.iso file and why doesn't
it associate vmlinuz withe the correct pxelinux.0 and config file ?

I do not know how d-i build system works but:
 mini.iso file is not always needed. I use only vmlinuz and initrd.gz.
 pxelinux.0 is part of the syslinux package.

And maybe the same question applies to alpha architecture as there is
only a vmlinuz and an initrd.gz in the debian ftp server.

I know nothing about alpha
