Hi People,

I've attempted to devise a solution that allows bootstrapping the Fedora Core 3 install

hard drive. It's a pretty crude and temperamental, yet novel solution that
uses FeeeDOS to create a ramdisk in which the installation files are unzipped
and then loaded with loadlin.

Here's a link to my site which details this:
