The box uses LVM so I can't give Lenny its own actual disk
partitions.  Also, downloading a whole new installation is non-trivial
at 28.8 Kb/s (sometimes 14.4, sometimes 9600).  I'm many miles from the
telephone exchange.  It took a few days to install an ia32 chroot with
just base, mc, lynx, and iceweasel.
