>1. The bootloader on hppa is "palo". Remove one line in the script which tries to move a non-existant "delo.2nd" file.
>2. On hppa/sid we now provide a 32bit-UP (vmlinux-*-parisc) and a 64bit-SMP kernel (vmlinux-*-parisc64-smp) only. Adapt the script to take this change into account. Specifically, a vmlinux-*-parisc (non-SMP) kernel doesn't exists any longer and as such it breaks the current debian-cd hppa script.
>3. Feature: The hppa bootloader is now able to load gzipped-kernels. So, put gzip'ed kernels on the CD, which saves CD/netinst space.

Done in git now, will make it into the next unstable upload shortly.
