Framebuffer support is needed to support some foreign languages (JP in

ISA type devices (like mcd) sometimes causes a system (without the said
device) to hang on startup. We've had many reports of this type of problems
in the past.

Are you planning on installing on many different machines? If not, all you
need is to create three floppies.... 

I don't want to sound like I'm unwilling to help, but between
causing-machines-to-hang and asking-the-user-to-make-floppies, I hope you'll
agree that the latter solution is better.
