I don't have an nfs server to do an nfs install.  Just an http server.

1. Can I just make a floppy with the drvnet.img and get it to look at it
after it boots from the bootnet.img?

2. I was using the bootnet.img from the 7.2 shipping release.  I see
there's a newer one in the 7.2 updates.  How can I tell if it includes
the tlan driver, without actually running through the kickstart to see?

Thank you.
