IMPORTANT NOTE ============== D-I RC2 is scheduled to be released fairly soon. If that should happen before the next DPN is released, this article should be updated! Cheers, FJP Etch-and-a-half installation images updated ------------------------------------------- As a result of the release on November 12 of the first release candidate for Lenny of Debian Installer (D-I RC1), the installer images for Etch-and-a-half have been updated as well. Consequence of this update is that during installation of Etch-and-a-half using the currently available images a newer kernel version (2.6.26) will be used. However, the kernel used for the installed system remains unchanged at version 2.6.24. In some cases this can mean that hardware which is supported during the installation does not work after the reboot into the installed system because support for it was added after the 2.6.24 version. Old Etch-and-a-half businesscard and netinst CD images remain usable. Old netboot images are no longer usable and will need to be replaced with a current image. The Etch-and-a-half Debian Installer web page  has links to the new images and also has links to the release announcements which give an overview of changes in the installation system. The Debian Installer team is currently preparing an RC2 release of the Lenny installer, which will again result in an update of the installer images for Etch-and-a-half. The kernel version used during installation will remain at 2.6.26.  http://www.debian.org/releases/etch/debian-installer/etchnhalf
