was an error while unpacking the kernel. Unpacked it a second time - now the machine works. Thanks very much!!!!!

Unfortunately, it is not an smp-kernel, but nevertheless, the machine works!! Your howto is brilliant, the people should put this into official usage.

I am install debian wtih a k260 and k460 with this howto. it is work perfekt.
