CVS commit: src/sys/arch/i386/conf

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   jym
Date:           Thu Feb 10 16:49:19 UTC 2011

Modified Files:
        src/sys/arch/i386/conf: INSTALL

Log Message:
For i386, include MONOLITHIC for INSTALL rather than GENERIC. While here,
remove drm drivers, we don't need them for install.

i386 GENERIC has FFS and ELF support compiled as modules, so we hit
an interesting "chicken-egg" situation when the kernel attempts to mount
a ffs ramdisk, while the module might be contained inside... the ramdisk.

Interesting scenario: my netbsd-INSTALL.gz testing involved a QEMU image
which already contained an installed system, including modules. So the
bootloader was able to get the ffs.kmod, and lead to a successful mount
of the ramdisk.

Caught off-guard by gson@ automated builds... Erf. My fondest apologies.
Lesson learnt. Hopefully, this will unbreak the floppy install.
Waiting for the release build to finish...
