see /usr/share/simple-cdd/profiles/vserver.* for an example of how to do it.


  echo linux-image-2.6-486-etchnhalf  >> profiles/MYPROFILE.downloads
  echo kernel_packages=linux-image-2.6-486-etchnhalf >> profiles/MYPROFILE.conf
  echo base-installer  base-installer/kernel/image select  linux-image-2.6-486-etchnhalf >> profiles/MYPROFILE.preseed

i'm not sure if that preseed line works with etch; preseeding kernels was
broken for the etch debian-installer.

there's also the --kernel-packages commandline option, which is the same as
putting kernel_packages in a profiles/*.conf file.

for a list of commandline options, try:

  build-simple-cdd --help

most commandline options are configuration variables that can be put in
profiles/*.conf, substituting - for _ (--kernel-packages commandline is
kernel_packages configuration option).

live well,
