    sarge ships default with a 2.4 kernel.
    (no need to define "bf24, bootfloppy, the previous installer, with 2.4 kernel)

    Does that answer your question?

    is there a tag 'linux26'? (a so called bf24 "replacement" )

    bf24 no longer exists as such. The installer uses 2.4 by default (which is
    already mentioned somewhere).
    The 2 flavors that are listed (vanilla and speakup) are really all there
    are.

    For vanilla there are several installation methods available; speakup is
    only available from floppy.

    There is the option of installing with the 2.6 kernel. That is mentioned a
    few lines down:
    An installer using a 2.6 based kernel is available for Intel x86.
    For more details on how to use it please consult the installation
    guide.

    This sentence can be improved IMHO:
    You also have the option of installing Debian using a 2.6 kernel,
    which may work better for some hardware. For details on how to
    do this, please consult the Debian Installation Guide.

    Cheers,
    FJP

    Yes it does. I don't know why, but I assumed a list of boot-floppies
    kernel here and missed of course bf24. Maybe I read woodys release notes
    before ...

    PS: I will remove the indentation of examples in the source for all
    languages for release note (de already done). This is important to
    reduce the indentation in the output files which is currently to large
    for paper width (PS, PDF, TXT formats). The indentation of SGML files
    outside example tags is unimportant.

    I will change



    # dpkg --audit



    into


    # dpkg --audit


    when nobody complains.

    Jens

    I agree completely.
    Dutch has also already been done. I also removed a lot of newline
    characters in examples.
