We really shouldn't mix the kernel we use for CD based install
and floppy based install... when we boot on a CD, we have access
to all the modules and we don't need to integrate it in the kernel.

That's what I expect when I boot a CD. Now, using modconf with a bf2.4
kernel makes you think that some modules are missing when they are not.

And as you noted, we'd better use that space for weird SCSI controllers
required to boot ... anyway that change is not urgent. But in the long
term, we should avoid to create such "strangeness" for CD based installation
just because of possible floppy based installs. Better create a separate
set/flavor for floppy installs ...
