Plip cables are rare and some archs can't provide plip. A slip cable
is easy to find and 115200 BAUD (10KB/s) isn't to bad to install
from. No matter if you have plip or slip, its allways a "overnight"
thing to install. I think it should both be present on the disks and
if the space is the problem, use bzip2.
May the Source be with you.
