Well, i moved some part of the net boot stuff to the cd-drivers floppy, but
this is not a nice solution, since it is confusing to need the cd-drivers
floppy for a net install. 

Still, this means we now have floppies of an appropriate size, and can do test
again, once we are sure they work, we will tidy up the rest of it, altough i
welcome suggestions on how to best solve this (my first approach of floppy
stuff having been earlier this morning).
