Ah, okay. I assume I can use the rescue floppy as a ramdisk to boot. I've
done debian quite a bit, but havnt had the pleasure of ignoring the install
floppy before; it probably wont be too bad. :)
Im guessing the steps will be more or less like so:
* Boot rescue disk
* mkswap / mke2fs
* mount src of base*tgz
* mount e2fs partition
* untar base onto the tobe /
* go frob /etc to have the right *tab
* reboot ?
