In case anyone was following this thread, here are a couple of gotchas
that I ran into:

1. I couldn't boot into the new system, getting "You are trying to
boot into unconfigured base system" or somesuch message, which
offered me to boot usint the Rescue disk.
"chmod -x /sbin/unconfigured.sh" fixed that problem.

2. I had to remove pcmcia and nfs related packages, which are
installed by default.

Apart from those, all went very smooth.
