I used the i386 floppy images to install to a Sony PCG-C1X which has no 
CD-ROM or floppy disk controller.  Booting was done via a USB floppy 
drive.  Boot followed by root disks (in expert mode) worked until I was 
prompted for a driver disk.  The system failed to see the network 
driver image, and simply returned to the load driver prompt each time I 
tried.

Workaround:
I changed to another virtual console, mounted the corresponding SCSI 
device to /floppy, changed back to the setup console, and installation 
proceeded from there via a Netgear PCMCIA network adapter.
