The 2.6.8 sarge kernel did fit on a miboot floppy just fine, thank you, miboot
is not in main though because of the apple-owned boot sector we have no
licence for, but you can find it on :


The current 2.6.12 sid kernel is too big by around 200K, but we will work it
to fit on a miboot size again before the etch release, hopefully, and by then
we may even have quik-floppy support or whatever, so ...
