If we don't get free floppies (there is/has been work on two approaches, 
rewriting miboot and adding a floppy driver to quik), I see no problem in 
mentioning BootX _after_ explaining netboot and while stating the technical 
problems, which _might_ occur and pointing out the non-free issue.

If we can't include miboot in non-free (I'm not completly sure we cannot, but 
IRRC it doesn't look real good. Please prove me wrong! :) then we shouldn't 
point to the miboot images in the manual. Providing them in a legal grey area 
is one thing, linking them in the official manual is another. Sigh.
