Re: Packaging philosophy question:

Yeah, now that there's a .97 kernel package (the last one was, what,
64? not particularly useful, especially when the bootfloppies were
running much later code anyway...)

If you can put out a package that matches the bootfloppies kernel,
that'd be enough to let someone install and then just grab the pcmcia
package on one more disk (well, put dftp on that disk too :-) and
install from the net from there.

I'll even test it for you (last install I did was "the hard way" --
installing the compiler, binutils, and enough other things to *build*
the source package :-) having one disk to run from would be nice. It
would also be useful when shopping for laptops...
