Thank you very much, I'm not quite sure why you send me this
information, but thanks. :)
I'm still trying to figure out if trustsec have a new home for:
http://www.trustsec.de/deb390/, that's the broken link reported
in the first message.

If you are complaining about the info on how to install, please,
consider reporting a bug against installation-guide-s390. And
there is a great chance that people that can fix that are not
