I've installed the boot-floppies packages (which is version 2.2.22) and
it seems to be ok. So far the only thing I've had to do is find a copy
of bootstra.ttp for the Atari build. I'm sure something else will come
up though.

My main problem so far has been the fact that the LC475 is at the end of
a 56k dialup link. It's slow at building, but seems to be managing.
