The issues you describe here are clearly not bugs, but a new feature. The detection/loading of modules is something that should preferably be done automatically by the kernel, although it can probably be worked around in the installer (if there is a clear way to recognize _when_ the modules should be loaded). The "serial console" issue is probably relatively trivial to solve, but should still be done very carefully. Conclusion: the needed changes will NOT be done before the release of Lenny. However, there is a slight chance they could be included in a later stable update. That mostly depends on whether someone is willing to do the work required for that. Cheers, FJP
