You seem to think I don't know about disk sizes. The box normally has
a 5.25" drive, therefore I wanted the 1.2M images. Oh and before you ask,
the box cannot boot from CD and it doesn't have PCI, only ISA.

But that's not the point. The point is that there's probably an unusable
image on the server.
