Yes the compact floppies did work. However, it seems like the script
to create initrd.debinstall is not working, and I felt like it ought to
I can imagine a scenario where I might want access to a module that is
in the standard boot floppies, but not in the compact boot floppies.
So it would be important, in that case, if I could depend on the install
to create a working initrd.
But of course, I've solved my problem. I only wanted to document it in
case the boot-floppy folks weren't aware of it.
Just tryin' to be helpful.
