The tool used by the distribution to generate the initrd for the installed system (for Debian initramfs-tools) will need to make sure the mmc driver modules are included in the initrd if the install is to an mmc device. I have checked this, and for Debian in turns out they are included when the "MODULES=most" setting is used, so no problem for default installations. I have bought a 2GB Sandisk Micro-SD card (8 EUR here) and have just successfully completed an install, including bootloader installation after applying a few relatively minor patches. There are no patches outside D-I required, so we could consider implementing this before Lenny. I will send a separate mail with the patches. Cheers, FJP
