I think the / would break on Amigas (it's the directory separator);
maybe "Debian_m68k 2.1" or "DebianM68k 2.1"?

I don't know if /all/ of main will fit on one CD on m68k.  I'll try my
damnedest though.  My guess is that a lot of the docs packages could
be pushed onto a second (read non-essential) CD.  I've already saved
about ~20M by throwing off the useless kernel-source packages for
versions other than 2.0.33.  BUT I can't say anything definite until I
have everything here...
