Bug#505773: debian-installer: Bootable netboot image for USB stick patch

Quoting Kenshi Muto (kmuto@debian.org):

> After this patch is applied, 'make build_netboot' will build boot.img.gz
> in dest/netboot/ directory for i386 and amd64 with both text and gtk
> installers.
> Because I didn't know well about other architectures, my patch didn't
> touch them.
> This boot.img.gz is more convenience than hd-media image for usual
> installation scene (install Debian into machine with wired network),
> because it isn't necessary to copy any ISOs, isn't necessary to setup
> TFTP server, and is pretty small. Currently I set 63MB for this image
> but we can change it to even 31MB. (I assumed user may copy firmwares
> and something into it).

Nice. However, as this requires documentation changes, I think this
should be post-Lenny.
