boot floppies 2.2.7 available for testing

Boot-floppies 2.2.7 have been released, and need some testing. 2.2.7 is
mostly bugfixes, plus more changes to lbr/lilo prompting. Several of the
previous problems, like networking and DHCP, seem to have been fixed;
others, like PCMCIA, may still be a problem. We need some more problem &
success reports to figure out where to go and what to do from here. Much of
what Adam posted about the last release is still quite relevant:

> Comments and followup to debian-boot@lists.debian.org please.

Bear in mind that the boot-floppies install can be tested by anyone with a
100 mb or so swap partition that you can do a test install onto, or a spare
partition or hard drive.
