    Well, the right thing (in my somewhat warped mind) would be to look
through the i386 makefile and see about breaking the install image across
two floppy disks as i386 does. However, stripping out VERBOSE_* and PCI
sound support might get the kernel small enough to fit on a single floppy,
with USB keyboard support.
