fdisk/bootsector: good luck ;-) Is it possible that fdisk checks if the
MBS is either bootsel or default MSDOS MBR, and automatically assumes
bootsel if non-MSDOS? That would classify as "bug", IMHO.
pppoe: still trying, it is a bit hairy to do manually and pppoe0
stubbornly refuses to comply with meâ?¦ please, consider including pppoe
into the installer, with auto-negotiation, daemon-loading etc.
