Sorry, I guess I was too terse in my description. What I did was use the
net driver image, deleted the pcmcia and wireless driver modules and
copied the ide-module _or_ scsi-module driver udebs into the image and
dd'ed a new floppy. I update the file with the udeb list, of course.
This specific configuration won't work for the particular situation the
bug-reporter is in. But the idea is to create a floppy image with all of
the module udebs needed for the install into one floppy, so you don't need
to change floppies. This might not work in all situations, since some of
the udebs are pretty large and won't fit on a single floppy. But that
didn't seem like the situation in this bug report.
Sorry for the confusion...
