Yes, the scsi-less zImage "laptop" flavor sounds like a good idea to
me.  I hope the boot-floppy team can work it in.  I don't know what
else was different in the tecra flavor other than the kernel and
whether this flavor can safely replace it.  It's clearly a matter of
some urgency since we need at least 3 weeks of testing on the
finalized boot floppies prior to release...
