I have created a custom Debian woody netinst iso based on the bf2.4 series
but I have updated the following on the iso.

1) upgraded from kernel 2.4.18 to 2.4.19-ac4

2) included both aacraid AND megaraid support in the kernel which will
allow it to be used with pretty much all of the dell on-board and pci PERC
raid controllers.

3) included support for the Intel e1000 ( intel's 10/100/100 card ) and
the tg3/tigon3 ( Broadcom based 10/100/1000 ) copper gigabit nics that
Dell is shipping the servers with.

I've tested it on a pe1650 and a pe2650 without problems but should also
work on pretty much all of the boxes.

Its a netinst iso, so its only about 8MB in size since it will download
the rest of the distribution files from a Debian mirror.
