It will be a somewhat uncomfortable solution: until that change it has
been enough to carry around TWO floppies:

1. the muLinux floppy
2. a copy of it (just in case it has a defect)

In the future we will have to carry around FOUR floppies and that's to
much for just putting it into a the pocket of a shirt. :-(

Do you think, it is possible to compose that new Floppy #1 in such a
way that it will be really usefull for emergency AND diagnosis?

Still hoping the best, :-))
