PXE boot of the i386 netinst.
I was able to boot the installer and progress through an install of 'squeeze'.
I had to add the bnx2 firmware to the initrd, as per
but otherwise the installer was working ok.

However what I want to do is install 'lenny', using some features in the
'squeeze' installer. I thought this was supposed to be possible.

What happens, though, is the installer stops dead in its tracks with:

  Oct 27 15:27:10 anna[4985]: WARNING **: no packages for kernel in archive

I preseeded the installation, with "suite=lenny" in the boot line.
The installer reads all the preseeding files and detects the desired suite and codename correctly.
But then it appears to try to load kernel modules from the 'lenny' part
of the repository rather than 'squeeze'.

I've attached the full syslog, gzipped. Happy to test changes as I would
like to get this working.
