Yes, I've been using transname with debian for a couple of months. I have
2 diskless computers that use transname to mount / from my server.

There are some problems getting it to work with debian, notably in the
/etc/init.d/boot file. I think that sysvinit's maintainer has incorporated
one change into it that makes nametrans easier to set up (don't delete
/etc/mtab, just erase the contents of it).
