It will be included in boot-floppies 2.2.5 (we're about to release 2.2.4) most probably, we're working on it. Installation over HTTP has been added to boot-floppies this weekend, and will be included in 2.2.4. It hasn't been tested properly, so it might not work 100% till boot-floppies 2.2.5. You should be able to configure your network settings via DHCP and to install Debian over HTTP mid january. Cheers, Marcel Please send a Cc to me when replying to me on this mailinglist.
