I suppose amigainstall.lha and atariinstall.lzh (and whatever the Mac
stuff is) could be pre-unpacked on Disc 1. This would allow a
no-disk-except-CD-ROM install... I think. I'll have to double-check
the installation guides though.
Alternatively the usual course of action is:
. Copy the floppy images to a hard disk you can access from both
Linux and your native OS.
. Unpack the install kit there.
. Follow the installation instructions from Franky or Michael.
Things that need to be on the m68k CD that aren't elsewhere;
preferably easy to find...
0. Boot floppy packages. VMElilo. (It's in base, but you also need
it outside a .deb where it can be used.)
1. Debian install guides for m68k.
2. Linux/m68k FAQ.
3. Native-OS versions of gzip and tar? [Are these needed to install?]
4. [...?] <- Am I missing anything?
