No, it doesn't, I can deal with netbooting it, or I can shove a kernel 
into an xfs partition now that there's XFS support in the mainstream 
kernel.  I just want a netboot installer image that'll lay down 
something useful on the disk...  I don't have any other MIPS systems 
running Debian yet that can do that, though I suppose I could try 
installing to another machine and move the disk over...
