OK, so you'll struggle with any CD creation script then...

Agreed. The thing is getting more general as time goes on. I've had offers
of help to make it architecture-independent at least. As for slink-only,
there is unfortunately a lot of release-specific stuff needed at the
moment, for example the location of boot floppy images and the like. I
could make it cope with hamm disks too I guess, but it'll need some work.

Getting a SCSI chain working is perfectly simple if you remember that there
must be exactly three terminations: one on one end of the cable, one on the
far end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with a silver-handled
knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony DeBoer
