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.
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
