As it is now, "debian/rules binary" adds the md5sums for the *.bin files
to the changes file, so they can be checked automatically (and
authentified, as any other package in our distribution). I guess if we
want to keep that feature we will have to "hardcode" the name of the
directory in debian/rules, to use directory/file.bin instead of file.bin
in the .changes file. Does disks-<arch>/ sounds good enough?

(Of course, I can modify the boot-floppies Makefile to show the
architecture in the file name if you prefer that solution).
