Can you put them on a floppy?

I tried just copying to a floppy, but the floppy would not boot.

I never can get my Suns' to netboot to my other machines.

tftp sucks and I hate messing with it.

I don't mind burning a CD either, but since most of my Sun's have a
floppy drive, it seems a convienient way to upgrade OBP.
