installing from floppy

The handbook doesn't speak much of install methods other than 
"Installation from CD" (chapter 2). 

For hardware that doesn't do PXE by itself, a grub floppy lets you boot 
off a tftp-serving dfly system, like the upcoming pxe-savvy installer 

Rahul's DIY link:

Another resource -- the online boot-disk creator: 

I think this fits best in chapter 2, though it's also relevant to 19.7 
"Diskless Operation".

There's also 12-3. "A Script for Creating a Bootable Floppy":
While it probably works for anyone with experience, it's just a rescue 
disk (as advertised) and not an installer.

Perhaps it's best to wait for the pxe-serving Installer before updating 
the Handbook.

(Feedback? Thumbs up/down?)
