[Gnewsense-dev] new gNewSense/MIPS netboot & archive

I rolled a new netboot image, and corrected a number of issues in the archive.
What we have now:

  - tasksel didn't work (package selection wasn't automatically installed).
    It's quite messy to work with tasksel anyway, so I got rid of it, and
    now use preseeding for package selection instead.

  - wireless was mistakenly disabled by deblob, fixed now (thanks to DJB
    Clark for pointing it out).

  - renamed distroname (lenny -> mipsel-l)

  - fixed a few package conflicts.

Note: I experienced stability problems that sometimes brought Linux down when
performing a full (+desktop) install.  Therefore the desktop components are
not enabled by default, you have to install them manually afterwards:

  apt-get install gnewsense-pkgsel-desktop

Note2: for those who already installed with an older version, the current URIs
for sources.list are:

deb mipsel-l 
mipsel-l main
deb mipsel-l main

  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
