OK, we can now get preliminary Natty installs, thanks to the new stage1 bootstrapping thingy. I have not gone any further than confirming that the base system installs successfully. There's still some cleanup to be done (for example, it configures the network twice, which is unnecessary), but it's functional. I tested a lucid install on a cluster machine, and it still works, so that's good. In the event that the world explodes, we can revert to the old installer with:
cd /mit/athena10/installer
ln -nsf jaunty current

We kind of suck at making the installer fit into the workflow policy.
