Thanks alot!  I used this method today to install my new JVC MP-XP7210DE,
and it worked more or less flawlessly.

What didn't work was the creation of a boot-floppy before restarting
into the base-system, but I luckily didn't need it :).

It would have saved me time if the sis900.o module were included
in the rescue boot kernel, as this network card seems to be very
common for notebooks.  My old one had it, and this one has the same chip too.

Thanks again,
