There are a couple problems with them though (didn't try the cdrom, only
- you must make/use all 5 driver floppies even if you don't need extra
drivers, I'm kinda new to debian, maybe I missed something...
- the kernel is optimized for install bootstraping, recompile one for
regular use, I think blade's uses udma 33, but there might have been
other slow down factors.
- the rescue image does not have xfsrestore or any xfsprogs on it.
It would be good to note also that in the xfsprogs deb package
/usr/sbin/xfsrestore is a symlink to /sbin/xfsrestore ...so if you hose
