Yep.  I remember installing RH 4.1 and being *extremely* confused by one
particular dialog box.  I think it was the one asking what to do about
the hard drive.  I knew I wanted to run FDISK, but by the wording of the
question I had NO IDEA if OK or Cancel was the one to press!!!

Actually, I don't think the number of floppy disks matters much!  If we
need to have more than one floppy to make it clear, let's do it.  NT has
3 floppies, and it's no big deal.
