More boot floppies... lots more. Gets through a full build on powerpc now, and we're up to 50K free - Ben says there are no problems with stripping yaboot or using -Os. I think I am not going to actually change mac-fdisk right now; I'll just document creating a bootstrap and put the rest off till woody, or at least 2.2r1. I still have an offer from Michael Schmitz to give me mac-fdisk; when I have time I will give it an update from the newer upstream version and/or just merge it into util-linux so we can use cfdisk. There's also 'perldisk' but I don't know if that would be appropriate for boot floppies.

Other goal for today is updating kernel packages again. I'm thinking of adding a prep-netboot package soon so that boot-floppies does not need to recompile a kernel every time through make release.
