The kernel is too big to fit on a standard 1.44M floppy, but on most
machines you can overformat the disks so the kernel will fit without any
problem. I have built fixed mkbootdisk RPM's for RH-7.1 but I didn't for
7.2 until now. If I find some free time I will rebuild packages for 7.2
and kindly ask Eric to put it on oss/contrib toghether with my newest RH
XFS kernel 2.4.9-31SGI_XFS_1.0.2.
