Still very cool: Debian floppy install

Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Say what you like about Debian or Ubuntu, but I think the
floppy installation option was the coolest thing ever. I might be
alone in that assessment, but I’m a bit sad that it
doesn’t seem to be around for newer versions. (Tell me if
I’m wrong, please.) I’ve done two or three
installations with Etch, and then jumped up to stable or testing,
when I felt daring.
"I’ve only run into a few problems, and most of them were
hardware-related. The network card I used for the installation is
the axnet-cs-driven card I’ve mentioned in the past, but I
realize now that the card itself is untrustworthy."
