Eric Delunay said that sun4c's seem to have a problem with booting the
compressed images, presumably because of the slow hardware (uncompressing
on the fly while reading the floppy is very IO intensive).

I don't think this is something we can solve, other than by doing what we
already are. The only solution I know of is a CD or net install.
