As a fallback, I've been threatening to do a simple userconfig-style
thing in loader itself as a fallback if necessary.. I'd rather not since
that would just make loader bigger still, but it's always there as
a quick/dirty fallback option.

If my memory serves me correctly, we dont enable bootforth on the 5.0 boot
floppies.  This is probably more a symptom of having an identical config
for floppies and cd boot.  Now that we have cdboot for i386 all but there,
we should be able to finally do a complete boot for the CD case and a
smaller stripped kernel with esoteric drivers on a seperate disk for the
floppy-only case.
