Is this dynamic (based on /sys) or static nodes?

qemu is highly cool, isn't it?

I have a script that makes a partitioned hard drive image you can boot with 
qemu.  It'll be in the next release of Firmware Linux (which was _supposed_ 
to be yesterday, and should be later today...)  

The last bootable CD I made was based off a 2.88 floppy image, but the next 
one should be based off of the hard drive image...

Yay rah cool.  Boot floppies are obsolete, boot cd's are the new way of doing

We have a script to create a boot floppy?  Where?

Ah, examples/bootfloppy.  Never saw that before.  Cool...

I'm focusing on getting FWL 0.9 out today, and then jumping on the 1.1-pre2 
buglist, but at the very least we can link to your page from the FAQ (once I 
get a chance to play with it).

Steve Ballmer: Innovation!  Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word.
I do not think it means what you think it means.
