I'd like to see Debian being intallable with only one floppy disk
over the network, eg. via FTP or NFS.
Reason: We get customer machines where we install Debian and some of them
don't have a CD. Playing with floppies is undesirable.
For no good reason, but why do *bsd* systems have such installation methods
by default, and Linux doesn't?
