:((( thought so.

mmm, they are not really difficult to do, i remember writting my own split
programs, because non where availabel back then. 

You could write them in C, a kind of very small amiboot utility ? 

Or even maybe implement the functionality in ami/apus boot to have separate
files on separate floppies.

But this isn't really worth it. The 1.76 Mo floppy stuff would be though, as
it is not really difficult to do. I am nsure someone with a 1.76Mo floppy
could make them in less than 10 minutes. Even i could give make them right now
(altough not test them). The only real problem is the choice program, but if
you only want the launch the debian install stuff, then even that is not
