Doing this part is quite a trick, at least for me at the moment.  I can 
get new bootblocks on floppies only to have them tell me "bad 
disklabel" when I try to boot them.

What I did was pretty nasty, but it works: I have a set of kern, inst-1, 
and inst-2 disks with the original 0.9 bootblocks (v1.8) and -current 
everything else.  They appear to work fine.  Does anybody want to donate 
ftp space so that I can make them available?
