Those were nifty :).

As would I.  3.5" CD-R media is becoming very easy to come by, not to
mention the fact that they are much faster and more reliable than
floppies.  Ideally, the CD would contain the entire boot floppies tree
for a given platform (i386, PPC, AXP, etc.), but boot with a fairly
generic kernel.  Is this doable with Potato?
