I've just tried the woody tftpboot image, and it works to a point - then when it reaches the 'downloading core system' phase, after it finishes downloading all the .debs, it locks hard during the 'extracting package foo.deb' part. I'm at a loss - anyone have any suggestions? -- MaTThew Hall | Life isn't fair. firstname.lastname@example.org | But the root password helps.
