woody boot-floppies 3.0.9 i386 for testing

Version 3.0.9 of the boot-floppies for i386 is available for testing 


I cannot release this until I get some certification from front-line
testers that this version works (defined as working as well or better
than 3.0.8).  Your testing will help  us release Woody faster.

Please send replies to debian-boot@lists.debian.org, not to me
