Even better, one could even use 7z to compress the files so that they
can be placed in volumes and installed from floppy.
While it wouldn't be a popular option, if the files were laid out nicely
enough on the installer CD, it'd be something that someone could do.
Having been in situations a lot where a floppy install set would be
useful, it's an idea.
