"Single-disk installation program"? Is this a single CD, or a single
floppy? I haven't come across a single floppy installation, but would
love to have it as it would make many of my installs much less painful.

Oh, wait. Having re-read that, I think what you're saying is a total of
6 disks; one for the installer, and five for the "support" files. BTW, I
think the current distro is up to 10 or 11 diskettes now. Bummer.
