please use the current simple-cdd package, even if you're primarily
working with etch. the etch-simple-cdd branch has many bugs.


alternately, you could grab from the development branch:

probably could drop this, but it doesn't hurt to leave it in, either.

normally, the udeb doesn't contain the profiles, were you trying to
customizee the simple-cdd-profiles udeb? 

the udeb is intended to be used unmodified, merely grabbing the profile
information from your generated CD.

look at the Howto mentioned above for the recommended way of building a
CD with simple-cdd.

live well,

p.s. an updated README and dependency resolution is in the
simple-cdd-devel branch, and should be uploaded to unstable soon. :)
