Is it possible to do this with a single floppy drive? When I snagged 1.2.1,
I ended up not trying it, because it required one more floppy drive than I

Gaak... I can't manage to get files copied onto the hard drive without
serious errors, and thus haven't fully installed the comp package yet. I
think I'll look at 1.1 first, to see if I can shoehorn it in... :)

Thanks for the ideas!
