in contrary :)

etch is working fine; lenny will get fixed user-setup today as its
unblocked now, and sid /should/ again work, now that squashfs is fixed.

i can't help with ubuntu, as theres no ubuntu specific support anymore
in live-initramfs. additionally, i don't have an ubuntu system at hand,
so everything i say about it is purely untested, theoretical knowledge.

etch and lenny (as of tomorrow) are just working fine. for sid, i've
done some successfull manual builds yesterday. automated will follow
when fixed squashfs on the mirrors.

(manual means, manual configuration, automatic means, out of the box
configuration without manual 'interference')

if you're focussing on etch, i'd like to see the complete config/* you
have used to generate it. otherwise one cannot reproduce/help you with it.
