add mini-CD images to build?
I wonder if there would be any mileage in having boot-floppies build a set of
minimalist i386 CD images that included just images-2.88/rescue.bin and
drivers.tgz for each of the flavours.
This would allow people to boot off a CD and get far enough to configure
their network and use that to install subsequent stuff such as base. At the
moment, to reach that point you need at least two floppy disks; if your network
card requires a module from the driver disks, that's up to four more.
These are tedious to create, and no use at all if your computer doesn't have
a floppy drive (as many don't, these days).
