In the past, this has simply been a directory in disks-i386, named after
the date of the build, like 1999-09-12, and usually a link called current
that points to the most recent. I believe that in the past, this was set
up by the boot floppies maintainer...

Thanks for all the good work, I look forward to testing the boot disks.
