Remarks, inst'ng rex from scratch

Several remarks.

 1) Don't give an entry
          vga=[any number other than normal]
    in /etc/lilo.conf and launch lilo with that.  It will
    completely confuse dselect, and nobody is aware of this :-(

    I got much trouble until guessing a screen of 100x40 to
    cause confusion.

2)  Installing via NFS only allows you to accept
    a) the stable ditribution,
    b) the development distribution but
    c) not any other distribution, as "frozen".
    So I have to copy the rex-tree to a local separate partition
    and redirect "stable" to rex.  Not really?!

3)  The new floppy set is GREAT.
    How can one access the first Menue from a booted HD?
    (to, e.g., change the net configuration / keyboard / ...)
