As you know, we don't even have tecra disks anymore, thank god.

I just tested a full base system install with loading base2_1.tgz from
NFS.  Worked fine; my show-stopper was that /etc/fstab wasn't created
(bug reported).   But these problems seem to be fixed in 2.1.4.

Another bug fixed, although I find the task after root login/reboot to
be rather confusing here.  Suggestions appreciated I'm sure.

I would imagine most machines are stand-alone?
