Yes, indeed. But there too few hints on dates, e. g. the To Do List: no
date for the updates, and the last date of the boot floppies are 6th

the debian-bsd.lightbearer.com page).
A step by step instruction page for each way (floppies/ chroot) will
clearify the braveness you need if you suppose to test it. ;-)
