Notice that sarge has a nubus kernel (kernel-image-2.4.27-nubus), which was
never tested, and as a consequence we never enabled d-i to work on those).

If you could give it a try, that would be real nice.

Nope, since the sarge install disk need to know about the nubus subarch, as
well as include some modules maybe. Please provide feedback about the sarge
nubus kernel, and i would be happy to work on nubus porting of d-i with you or
other interested people.
