Uh, actually, it is more likely that it would be a problem.

Why not use the disks and go part way thru the installation process,
installing onto a swap partition or some other temporary partition,
not going all the way (I mean, you don't need to install base and lilo
on the mbr and such), just far enough to be sure that the ne-tulip
module works.

Sure, if they are not already filed.
