latest bf's and network install

Hi all -

  Thanks a lot for the new boot floppies. They almost finish everything up

I'm like a person whose hands were kept numb, without sensation from the
first moment of awareness -- until one day the ability to feel is forced into
them. And I say "Look! I have no hands!" But the people all around me say:
"What are hands?"
