 i tested the installer in qemu after making this change.  i tried
 changing "floppy" and it didn't work.  that affects the *external*
 install in the sparc installer.  these are the device nodes in the
 *internal* chroot aka "instfs" that are missing.
 (it doesn't help that changing these items requires you to blow
 away parts of the obj/release dirs to get rebuilds to occur.)
