Well having already made some with 2.6.11, I intend to make one with
2.6.12 just as soon as debian released packages for 2.6.12 (I don't feel
like doing the patching of the kernel myself and many debian patches I
find very useful).

I am trying to make sure I notice when 2.6.12 comes out.

I still hope to hear from someone with i2o hardware whether my attempt
at adding i2o support to my netinst image works or not since I have no
such hardware to test with.
