Re: S/390 install cd image?

(CCing this thread to the debian-boot list as that is where installer 
development is coordinated)

There currently are no S/390 CD's that can be used for installation, only 
CD's containing packages.

We actually had no idea that it was possible to install from a CD on 
S/390. We should be able to create an installation CD, but someone will 
have to feed us the information on what's needed to make the CD bootable 
and what drivers are required.

If the hercules S/390 emulator also supports booting/installing off CD (or 
a CD image), information on how to do that would be very welcome too.

So, if you're interested on helping us realize this, you're very welcome.
