I think there is enough space on the boot floppies to include ftp on it. It
would be nice to be able to get the base system tarball via ftp instead of
needing an NFS server around.
Also: Why do the boot-floppies require a driver disk? There are certainly
situations where I do not need any drivers from the driver disk. Could
the driver disk be gotten via FTP or so too?
The CD-ROm boots directly into the rescue disk. But how does it then get the

The boot-floppies now support HTTP for the base system which is
more comfortable, I believe.

You can skip the drivers disk or install it via fd0/fd1/mounted/harddisk.
If you only need a couple of drivers you can load them from an extra disk
as well (from 2.2.17 and newer, not released yet)
The only stupid question is the unasked one.
