Bug#145635: boot-floppies: boot-floppies could use an ftp client

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 20020503
Severity: wishlist

In the recent case where I needed to fetch the working base-config because
the archive held a buggy one, I encountered a rather pathetic difficulty:
there is no easy-to-use way to download a file from the base system.
(I could have configure apt, but that would be, um, way overkill at that
stage.)  I chose to copy the package onto a floppy and use that.

But if wget, or ftp, or *something* were in the base system, it would be
very good.
