Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

I intend to (re)install Debian onto a PowerPC OldWorld machine and,
essentially, the only option that I have here is to use floppies.

I was talking with Sven Luther on debian-powerpc and he recommended me
to use the daily builds of debian-installer, but when I visited his page
(p.d.o/~luther/d-i/sid/images/*/powerpc/floppy/), I saw that,
unfortunately, the root disk-image is too big to fit onto a floppy,
unfortunately.

So, this means that I can't actually install Debian on this box, using
both the current installer in sarge (which doesn't boot on oldworlds),
nor the current installer that's being worked on.

I'd really love to have d-i working on ow ppc's.


Thanks, Rogério.
