I think we should sacrifice the "one floppy install" concept, in favor
of separate boot and root floppies. That would also give us room for
a few more rescue tools. The last time I tried, "tar" would not
work. (Yet, the basic system comes in a tar file. I never chased
down how that works.) We could also supply sfdisk in addition to
fdisk, and maybe a better editor.
