Oh, sure! I did network friendly install by downloading only vmlinuz
and netinstall initramfs, and i've "shot myself in the foot", nice!

Give me more of that prehistoric crap, please!

Or maybe i just want to test Sid like that. Again i need running OS after
reboot, but nothing else, like password management. Test means creating
rootfs and all other things, so don't propose me useing some ready fs.

I didn't traced issue, but Sid have problem with filesystems, like XFS,
which support sparse files. I've gigs of /var/log/lastlog and faillog
in every Sid install tests!!!
