We screwed up with factory. It contains 99 % of the packages from
Alpha5 but the installation image (which you need to install via a
boot iso, is too old:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 86638592 2006-10-04 10:20 FACTORY/inst-source/boot/i386/root

We have just checked in new packages (and then noticed that the last
update run missed this) so that the next major sync to FACTORY will
not only contain an updated installation image but also packages after
Alpha5 :-(. There's no easy way for us to fix this now - and
therefore I will not stop the syncing of factory,
