As it happens, the kernel + modules is already too large for a 1200K
floppy, and we have to go to a second floppy for less-used modules. The 1440K
floppy won't be far behind, as every device on earth is being added to Linux.
So, I have some room on this second floppy for PCMCIA stuff.

I think so too.
