Description Chris Adams 2004-03-03 01:28:30 UTC
Most of the contents of the dosutils directory on the first CD can go
away.  Since there are no boot floppy images, rawrite and rawritewin
are useless.  Most computers now have NTFS, so both fips versions are
about obsolete.  Will loadlin work from Windows?  Anyone with a CD
burner under Windows will have something like Easy CD or Nero that can
read a CD itself, so readcd isn't much needed.

Anyway, at least a good bit of it could go away.

parted in rescue mode easily replaces fips anyway.
