actually, the floppy controller doesn't work yet.  documentation's
available but no-one's felt much urgency to get it working... you said
kernel hacking wasn't something you were interested in though.

debian-installer is also intended to enable net installs and cdrom
installs, so a working floppy drive is not required to help with that.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
