"Waah! I want sysinst to do it for me! Waah!"

Actually, I noticed that the latest sun3 install stuff, while still dependent
on the miniroot, does extract ftp'd sets directly off the network onto the
destination disk. Mmm, nice.

Hey, is Erik Fair listening? I finally found a replacement SeaCrate for that
sun3/60 you gave me... it's installing 1.4 as I type this!
