We did not test it on an Etch server, and did not test Etch 
installations from the Lenny server, but there's a high chance 3.2.9 
will still work when installed on an Etch server.

Apart from that, you will always be able to install Etch, even from a 
Lenny server, by unpacking an Etch base image from basefiles, fcopying a 
sources.list with Etch repositories, and define only packages available 
in Etch in your configspace.

It's the same method you(could) use for installing Ubuntu and Lenny from 
an Etch Server, and it works quite well.

Yes, we don't intend to deliver Etch packages from this version on.
