Note 0:

     The new 2.6-only businesscard image is groovy.  It's certainly
     smaller and sleeker.  But there are still situations where a 2.6
     kernel won't work, and 2.4 is still needed.  (see Bug#261463:
     "Missing drivers on powerpc 2.6 businesscard install") Would it
     be possible to make a 2.4-only CD available?

Note 1:

     It still asks for the "Linux floppy" driver module (twice) at the
     "Detect Network hardware" phase and the "Detect hardware"
     (looking for hard disks) phase.  (See Bug#261463)

Note 2:

     Manual network configuration still doesn't work! (See
     Bug#261460: "Non-DHCP network config step of d-i is broken")

Note 3:

     Because this is an OldWorld machine, I use BootX. This works just
     fine for me...

Note 4:

     Why is it necessary to have the partitioner "Check the swap
     space"?  (See Bug#261448)
