Yes, dpkg-buildpackage'd on Ubuntu server 9.10, formerly 9.04. On 9.04
it mostly worked as a charme. I just had to pull live-initramfs from
Debian (it is now provided by Karmic) and some messing with udevadm.

I like the idea, that both server and client run the same platform.

I need to work out a bit more. I just discovered that root's password is
not set to its standard value and sshd is not running. That makes it
hard to examine the result of installation. :-)
