I've improved my mkhybrid patches some more and written a
(very simple) image selector. I don't know if it works completely,
but this will enable you to put up a menu saying:-

Debian GNU/Linux 2.0
 1. Standard kernel
 2. Tecra kernel

When the CDs are booted, rather than one image per CD. I'll post the diffs,
and upload to experimental if you want.
