Well, uh...  Three of the most active MacBSD developers have 800K drives,
so I think an 800K floppy distribution will probably be created right
alongside a 1.44M distribution.  After all, one of the strongest reasons
behind the current development of MacBSD is to support those poor people
who have old, outdated machine that are, however, capable of running
32-bit BSD.  (I, for instance, am still running on a Mac II with 8M
RAM, although the two monitors and 1.1G of disk space disguise it

"The Macs," a semi-freeware product by M. David Greenspon, reports that
IIx's have 1.44M floppies.  My guess is that only II's and upgraded SE's
have 800K floppies (poor fools).

I hope this message doesn't come on the tail of a dozen others which
make it redundant...

 I think "make love, not war" is probably too extreme.  I think the sentiment
	might be better phrased, "make grudging tolerance, not war."
