I'd love to have someone take over the LILO package and work on making
the script smarter. It's a medium-sized project in shell programming
for a configuration-savvy programmer. I'm busy working on installation
floppies and other Debian projects.

You have 30 common shell utilities including cp, mv, ls on the new
1.1 install floppy. They aren't static - they wouldn't fit that way,
but they run just fine with a stripped-down shared libc on the floppy.
I haven't gotten e2fsck to fit on that disc, but I will.
