How about moving _all_ files from disks-m68k/current to install and
symlinking the directory? Only one symlink, much less errorprone..
Only one change for mac is necessary, there are 4 files in the install
subdirectory, which should be moved one dir up it seems. Simple change in
the boot-floppies, its only a remnant from slink.
disks-m68k/current is allreay a symlink, so it would not hurt, but save some
30MB of space and make CD creation for m68k much easier, since everything
will be set up allready by the boot-floppies (nearly everything, one info
file and one executable permission have to be set).
