Which can all boot from CD anyway, and would generally prefer to do
so. Seriously, stop obsessing over floppies. They're for legacy support
_only_; if they end up uninternationalised, or have to be two stage,
or use some other kernel, it just doesn't matter.

CD installs, netboot installs, boot-from-existing-OS and maybe USB
disk-key boots are the ones that are interesting these days. Get those
working, and people'll be able to hack around the irritating cases where
they might use floppies today.
