Good idea, looks to me the right way to do it,
I have just commit this change to the CVS repository. Is any new
upload of the boot-floppies package planned?
If not, I propose to remove the boot-floppies deb from the Alpha CDs,
this would not be a problem as this package is mostly redondant with
the source package, does anybody object?
