Yes, i386 still includes 2.4 as an option as of beta3. It wasn't removed
before then because I hadn't had a clear statement from anyone that we
were ready to remove 2.4 before then. That support has been removed in
the dailys. If the 2.4 kernel images are removed from testing then
anyone who follows the docs for doing a 2.4 install with beta3 will have
it fail at one point or another.
