	Install tiny boot disk installs generic kernel for large install
	by default. Custom installation must be used to replace the
	large kernel with the tiny kernel.
	Install from tiny boot disk. Try booting on a computer with less 
	than 8mg of memory. Failure to boot will occur.
	Work-around: select custom installation, deselect large generic
	kernel, select tiny kernel, continue with install.

	Fix: Make tiny boot disk select tiny kernel by default.
