They said that they would help out w/ debian proper, though. I don't think
that they are 'out of business' I think that they have just stopped
development on this distro. Also, you should check their web page on how
to edit /etc/apt/sources.list before you mess around with this file. There
are a few incantations that they recommend before upgrading to potato or

I'm in love with the idea of using a good installer (for my friends, I'm
manly enough to hack my own hardware :) ) to get a base debian down, then
sucking in the lastest distro with a few incantations. Seems like the best
of both worlds.

Also, I have heard that libranet is still ongoing. They are talking about
closing shop or something sad, but I think that they're distro is a bit
more recent than the old progeny 1.0 installer.
