Well, I have been on vacation and too busy at work lately. Linux is far
from my principal job responsibility, so I only work on Linux when
management is looking the other way. ;-)
But I did look at the source code for 'boot-floppies' and since the boot
process is something that I am not overly familiar with, I came to the
conclusion it would take me some time to figure out what the code is doing.
That being the case, and the fact that the plan is to drop support form
'boot-floppies' and migrate to 'debian-installer' I think the best use of
my time would be to concentrate on the latter. However, any suggestion or
opinions on this matter are welcomed.
Regarding hardware, keep in mind that I have access to most RS6000/pSeries
hardware - old and new.
