hi patrick,

it's very easy (maybe the document is written too complicated)
you don't really have to download that whole directory. if you are on a
network and have a quite common NIC you also can just download the kernel
in the compact directory (subdirectory of the URL you gave) and "root.bin"
, make two floppies with these two files and boot. then you just have to
enter the FTP-URL were you want to fetch the packages from.

if you are not on a network and don't have a usual NIC, you have to make
floppies from rescue.bin root.bin, all the drivers-images and all the
base-images. i think something like 17 floppies.

hope this helps
