boot-floppies was the old code for the installation programm. to
start from scratch with a better design, more flexible, etc. pp.
debian-installer was foudn which should replace boot-floppies in
and basically, it should just install the software ;).

the other thing is there are also a wide variety of arm based
things, riscpcs, acorns, cats, whatever, don't know really.

so it's more a problem of having people who can code and know the
architecture well.

so long
