This brings up the point of installation disks..  As much as I know people
don't like the idea (I'm not fond of it either), do the boot floppies
planned for potato have a few different sets for different occasions?
That is, is there a set optimized for notebooks which generally need
pcmcia and apm, but don't need traditional network or SCSI, etc?

Is our current boot floppy system even that flexible yet?  (I realize this
isn't your department dark, but I figured it was worth asking in case it's
something that needs work for woody..)
