new floppies for installing base from CD

Ian & other interested parties,

I uploaded a new root floppy, new boot floppies, and new base and image
packages. Using the new floppies, the base system can be installed from
a CD which contains /cdrom/base.tgz . To make this clear, once mounted
the file read is /cdrom/cdrom/base.tgz . I should probably make it look
for base.tgz in a list of places, once I have some idea of how other
CD vendors package Debian.

This is a two-floppy + CD install. I'll get it to one floppy eventually.

The boot-floppies package currently leaves base-<number>.tar.gz in /var/tmp
when it creates the base floppies. In the next version I'll have it create
it in the current directory as base.tgz .

Package:  boot-floppies
Version:  0.93.6-19
Description:  Scripts to create the Debian installation floppy set.
Priority: high for distribution creators, low for everyone else.
Changes: Make install.sh (on the boot disk) work with only the programs
 on my new root floppy (I had to add mv to the root floppy).

Date:  Sat Nov  4 22:02:38 PST 1995
Package:  image
Version:  1.2.13-6
Description:  Linux kernel binary image.
Priority: low, unless you have a CD recorder
Changes: Support reading odd sector sizes of some CD recorders.
 Many of these CD recorders report sector sizes of 2340 because
 they are capable of reading audio as digital data, headers and CRC
 information you wouldn't usually want, etc. Simply treat any sector
 size greater than 2048 as if it was 2048.
