I did get it to work using some creative thinking. I created a small
partition, installed RedHat on the main partition, booted into RedHat,
untarred root.tar.gz onto by small partition, rebooted to the rescue
floppy and specified my small partition as the root. Viola, an install
screen (and no more "Insert root floppy and hit enter ...)
I think I've managed to hose things up already, but hopefully it's
recoverable. I'm doing this for fun, anyway :)
