Anyone got a pointer to the relevant boot floppy or whatever I need?

While I'm at it, -current still crashes on my Promise EIDE controller until
I apply the clever patch to force it into some specific address range.  Anyone
know if there's a pr on that, and if so, which one it is?  I'll happily
volunteer as a guinea pig to get it fixed so I don't have to keep a patched
kernel.  :)
