Why not request access to boot-floppies CVS? If we trust you, you
don't even need to be a developer to work on this, either sending in
patches or writing via pserver.
I think the following seems to be the best scenario:
* boot floppy (1.4MB, possibly kernel + initrd)
* root floppy (1.4MB, root file system compressed)
* modules disk(s) (arbitrary number of modules etc, hopefully no
more than two)
Alternatively, the boot/root could be merged in a 2.8 MB ElTorito
image, with modules in some other location.
TFTP already merges boot/root AFAIK in the TFTP image. This should be
generalized for all architectures. Hopefully we could spin off a
Debian "boot-server" package from boot-floppies with this data.
Can we get some consensus? CD team, does this sound good to you?
