How did you manage to do the install, without PCMCIA? All on floppies?

I did some patches to XFree86 about the 3.1.2/3.2 timeframe, that were
never integrated into the official sources. It probably wouldn't be a
big deal to try them against 3.3.6, as things in the WD driver prolly
didn't change much during that time. Biggest problem: I've got to find
them, and I'm not having much luck... :-\
