If you read the last few messages in this thread, my comment below was a
_very_ tongue-in-cheek way of saying I did not believe he meant it was a
boot floppy image, even though that is what he had stated.

I was not the one saying the image was a boot floppy nor was I
indicating that I thought he was correct.  I was expressing disbelief.

A following message indicated that the image is actually a USB key image
for booting, which is as I had understood it.
