Adam Di Carlo was, but he had to take a trip.

Compiling matching kernels/pcmcia .deb's for the boot floppies is a bit

just getting the resulting .deb to have the right filename can be tough.
It takes manual, undocumented hacking. Only people I know who know how
to do it are Randolph Chung, Adam Di Carlo, and Herbert Xu.
