I still resort to, and use virtually trouble-free, floppy-booting for
installation of OpenBSD. 'boot floppy' then install over the network
from an OpenBSD server or a local box with the CD mounted or copied and
an ftp server. Works well.
I seem to recall that I had to write the floppy on a big-endian box
though. Might have been a bad floppy on the available Intel box; I don't
remember for sure.
