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 ?
