I guess my "Universal Boot Floppy" thread was similar to this one... so 
I'll pipe in here too.

If I can get the universal network card etherboot image thing to work 
from the hard drive, and use g4u to image it quickly over the network -- 
I'll be happy to have the floppy available for use on the remote terminals.

That said, I HATE floppy drives, but even just for proof of concept 
it'll be nice to get going.  I haven't had time yet to do more research 
on converting the .dsk file into a .zlilo file...  More later if I 
figure it out.  I'll happily post the g4u image file for everyone to use 
once I get it working.  It should be very painless to clone fast.
