Bug#429622: AMD/ATI SB700 support to Debian

Hi Dann:

Do you mean you need our test to the point release kernel on
I think I can ask our QA's help to test it. And I have one question

Is there any installation CD/DVD ISO image of "point release", which can
downloaded and burnt into CD/DVD? (It seems that there is no such ISO
If there is no such image, we need to install etch(4.0) on a non-SB700
then upgrade the linux kernel into the version you mentioned, and try to
boot this updated kernel on SB700 board, Am I right?
Because I think etch(4.0) can NOT be installed onto SB700 board
