@Colin Watson -

Hi Colin - Please review my changes to the Lucid debian-installer branch, which adds support for lts-backport-natty kernel:

Note that it actually fails to build in my pbuilder, because of this:
E: Couldn't find package firewire-core-modules-2.6.38-10-generic-di
... and indeed that package (and other modules) appear to be missing (!?) from the lts-backport-natty archive:
I do not know why that is. However, our own PPA build of the lts-backport-natty kernel *does* generate a firewire package (and the rest) such that this modification to d-i also builds successfully in our PPA and uses our PPA kernel.

Perhaps you understand the situation with lts-backport-natty? Or have other ideas about how we can get support for lts-backport-natty into Lucid's d-i? Thanks!
