Hrm. I think I tried that, but couldn't actually find the install
kernel on the memory image mounted from the floppy... but maybe I can
download an install kernel, tar it to a floppy and install that way?
That's much better than sneakernetting the kern and base packages
across to the machine, so I'll give it a shot...
