parallel port zipdrive?
parellel port cable connection?
the general idea is to create a local storage space where the install
files can reside, then do an install, then get rid of the files.
so, create a 2-floppy boot/root pair, get a parallel transfer completed
somehow onto a scratch partition on the HD, then boot off install disks
and complete the install.
alternatively : anyone know if it's possible to install on a different
machine, copy over an image of that, and dd it onto a new partition?
