Re: Great but...
This problem will be solved by the basedebs.tgz work that is currently being
implemented. Once that is working we'll be able to install the bases system
with a number of floppys. I'm not sure where it stands at the moment, a search
or this list archive would give you a better idea. It is definitely in
development still, so depending on how much you are ready to tackle, beware.
