To remove the ethernet modules from the "base" floppy would destroy much of the functionality of the base floppy.
Given a choice between sound and ethernet, sound would be removed without a second thought.
As I've mentioned earlier several times though, there's much documentation the been duplicated on the disk which could be removed.
That is "if" users would read the documentation provided at the download site.
Could a "DOC" addon be an answer to a sticky problem that's been bothering some users from day 3???(day 1 and 2 had only relatively experienced linux users 8^P )
