I recently obtained a Compaq Proliant 2000, which has a Smart Array
Controller built-in. I tested the boot floppies 2.2.4 and noted that they
did not support the controller, so I was going to find out how to build
my own boot-floppies, now luckily you already cared about it!

I will test the boot-floppy snapshots you mentioned next friday, when I'm
back home. I will then report any problems that I encounter.
