I set out to find whether the new manual provides that kind of information, or pointer to where it may be found. In the course of my search I have discovered: a) http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.arm/apas03.html contains links to a.1 The Multi Disk HOWTO <http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Multi-Disk-HOWTO.html> which is quite old and seriously out of date. I doubt whether any but the most frugal would be satisfied, for example, with the partitions sizes recommended on http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Multi-Disk-HOWTO-10.html#ss10.1. If nobody wants to take on the task of revising it, I suggest the link be dropped.

It's only two years out of date and looks generally correct to me as far
as workable minimum sizes go. I see no real reason to drop the link.

a.2 A link to Partitioning Strategies <http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/mini/Partition/partition-5.html#SUBMITTED> which gets a 404.


b) No manuals for PowerPC or s390.

I see both in the table at http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/

I saw the links there and got errors following them:
Quite possibly I misinterpreted this error:
