I was deceived by the readme, it takes up 5Megs of disk space, and isn't
enough to boot.  No kernel, no libc, no init, not enough to boot.  Though,
it does have quite a bit more fluff than a disk just for install would
need.  Then again, it had XFree version 2.0:)  I don't see why we couldn't
make a single disk X installer, our first priority is to gut what we can
from redhat.

Time to download a few chunks of redhat.  I've got a good question: We
should do as redhat did and use glibc or stick with libc?  TTYL!
