Frozen (potato) boot floppies don't seem to need a separate tecra
image. The default rescue/install disk should work fine. I had to
use tecra when I installed stable (slink) on my 600E, but not when I
installed potato on a colleague's 600X today. And potato installed

Using frozen makes a *huge* difference. Installing slink on a
thinkpad was hard; installing potato was almost as easy as on a
desktop system. There are still some minor glitches in the frozen
boot-floppies, but overall, it was still a huge improvement.
Sound may be an issue though -- I haven't got sound working on either
machine yet, though I confess I haven't tried very hard.
