How does it work ?  Why did you need to rewrite this piece of code ?
Is it because drivers.tgz too big to fit on one floppy ?
Btw, a quick look in the code see you have disabled the alternate kernel
feature I wrote before slink release: if you want to install from NFS with more
than one kernel/drivers provided Debian[1] you need to give different names to
each version of drivers archives (drivers-x.y.z.tgz for example).
Do you need help to recode it, or do you want me to fix it ?


[1] eg. 2.0.36 + 2.2.12 for sparc, tecra/non tecra for i386, ...  yes it was
    for slink but I propose we don't remove this possibility in potato.
