Well, then perhaps you could tell ME how to use the 3c509 driver in an
NFS install.
It exists in drvnet.img, and I can do a manual NFS install by inserting
the driver diskette when prompted, but I can't make the install work
right unless I put the contents of the driver diskette on a partition on
the system to be installed. 
That kind of takes the "kick" out of kickstart, eh?
