Well, we only really tried miboot in debian-installer setup, and i never
really had success with it with 2.6 floppies, except two mysterious times in
oldenbourg one year ago. We use 2.4 miboot floppies there. There has been some
discussion about using hfs formatted floppies with the kernel on it without
miboot though.

Yes, with 2.6.8 though the box died when switching the framebuffer on or

you need the miboot package from p.d.o/~luther/miboot, and can look at the
instructions on how to use it in the d-i build stuff.
