yes, there is no difference between the default offcial debian kernel
image and the kernel used and installed by boot-floppies.
kernel-image-2.2.19-pmac is what is used by boot-floppies and what
older systems should upgrade to.  it does not support adb keycodes and
thats the way it must and will stay.

i agree completly, thats why i made sure that the transition to linux
keycodes was made in the middle of an unstable non-release, thats when
