Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-686
Version: 2.6.24-6
Severity: minor

The message the user sees,

    If you have already done so, and you wish to get rid of this message,
    please put "do_initrd = Yes" in /etc/kernel-img.conf. Note that this
    is optional, but if you do not, you will continue to see this message
    whenever you install a kernel image using initrd.

tells the user to use the deprecated do_initrd, as seen in the
kernel-img.conf.5.gz, which by the way the user will never see unless
he installs a whole other package just to see it.

P.S., If he goes on to answer

 Do you want to abort now? no

his bootloader will not be run, so next boot will fail.

Instead say "...I am not sure if you have configured your boot loader
(lilo, grub,...) to add initrd images... I will proceed anyway,
assuming you have. If you want to get rid of this message ..."
 Do you want to abort now? no
And be sure to run lilo, etc. which still will give them a hope of not
being unbootable.
do_bootloader supposedly defaults to yes, but it was not run in my observation.
