thats the broken part to me. a) there are no rom files b) (much worse) if you 
follow the information in the package on how to get the roms, you will end up 
with a bunch of files still missing. [1] its no problem for someone who knows 
what the symptoms of missing roms are - and that you can always grab them from 
the source package or even the windows release. however for users who barely 
know what "roms" are this can be a showstopper :)

[1] i have informed the maintainer of the original debian packages a while 
ago, so they may or may not fix these problems :)
