I will retitle this on instead :) I'm not sure if "important" is an 
appropriate severity for this... reassigned to debian-installer also.

About the actual problem, that we need miboot for floppy booting atm: #323182 
- is the miboot bug with the most info in it. #315393 #315308 and #252426 
(the only one of the four with severity important) can also be closed when 
this is fixed.
(There are two proposed solutions for it: implement a free miboot alternative 
(in progress) or extend quik-funcionality (already implemented, but still 
buggy, doesnt work yet.)

Actually the bugs already stated that, so I just retitled that bug, as the 
other issues in this bugs are either solved or reported elsewhere.

I guess its partman-auto ?! (Not yet cloned.)

#321820 describes this behaviour as well (I cannot reproduce the first big 
problem the submitter mentioned, so I expect it to be a temporary problem and 
ignore it), so I retitle this bug and reassigned it to quik-installer.

re: the first two bugs: If LVM works on ppc, they can be closed.
The rest still needs more monitoring So I usertagged them as well...

#369304 proposes to fix this via storing the OF settings in quik.conf
