Ooh, gives me a reason to update my sparcbook with something later than 1.4K!
(It's the machine I do all of my external FTP'ing with, and I'm typing on it
now while watching Dr. Who.)

While I'm on a roll, how about ftp outputting to stdout, so sysinst can
pipe an installation set directly into gunzip | tar for extracting onto
small disks without needing /usr/INSTALL.
