they probably are - you are probably using the exact same kernel :^)

I don't know when 3.0r3 will release and even if it does, it's not
likely to have a newer kernel unless someone makes the effort to fix it.
Can some debian-clueful person suggest where Donald can properly
file a bug so debian-hppa can update it's kernel on the 3.0 installer?

Right now, AFAIK, folks are beating on "sarge" installer since that
wasn't even building not so long ago. sarge release may obsolete
3.0 completely and we are hoping to ship that with a 2.6 kernel
that works fine on pa8700.

My preference is don't mess with CDs and setup a dhcp/tftp boot server
and follow the netinstall instructions. If that's not an option for you,
then burning the newer netinstall ISO's would be the next step.
