Glad to hear that you can free up space and still maintain functionality. I look forward to seeing the result!



PS - I've often wondered if things would be simpler (maybe *much* simpler) if the floppy-boot process just assumed that there will always be a CD-rom drive available. Has anybody else explored that possibility?
