| Here is a try at a 3 floppy system. Most people should be able to

| If this idea is acceptable, we should probably tweak what should
| go on the second floppy and what is used the least and put that
| on the last one.
| To load drivers from the drivers floppy, go to "Configure" and then
| the last option there is "Load KLD".
| The last 2 files in the diff (bld-ko.sh and driver-list.awk) are not
| really needed. That is part of my attempt to create a single .ko to
| save space on mfsroot.flp. But I can't get internal dependancies to
| work yet. Most drivers depend on miibus and that don't get loaded
| first.

I just want to remind you that there are other drivers 
which depend on another device to work.  At this time,
I can think of: cardbus & friends, SCSI/CAM, USB, ongoing work on IEEE1394
ACPI, and PCM(not that installing requires PCM)
