until very recently, the i386-install floppy included restore(8).
this utility is essential when either recoverying from a disk
loss. so, now, there is no simple way to recover a lost system,
instead one must build one's own floppy that includes restore(8).
have a root disk crash and attempt to recovery with install media,
expecting restore(8) to be there like it has been for 7+ years.
revert the removal or restore(8) or provide explicit "recovery"
