Sorry if my ignorance of the install process is showing.  But would
going to three floppies create a new situation where systems with small
memories (think 4MB) cannot function?

I've got NetBSD running in 8MB, and I can tell you, it isn't much fun. 
Losing even more space to an MD is likely to make 4MB systems (even
more) unusable.

Or do we just not care about systems with memories less than X (FSVO X)?
