I have never tested the weekly build, but the multi-arch *daily* built
has problems on amd64 and i386 (not on powerpc), given that kernel
modules can not be found:

I did some basic CD-cover back in 2008 for etch, but they were really
basic stuff:


Please note that *CD* multi-arch images:

- are for amd64, i386 and powerpc (there were for other archs as well, I
  can not find them anymore)

- include the corresponding netinst image

- do not inclue any sources

*DVD* multi-arch images are indeed for amd64 and i386 and they include
the sources.

Last question: has someone tested the image you want to distribute?

Thx, bye,
