I've read and re-read this paragraph and I'm sure I'm missing something,
If you don't have a floppy, how do you install _anything_ on this thing ?
What would you boot from if the internal disk went bad (or if you merely
corrupted its boot block).

If you can describe what you have for resources without confusing me, I'll
be happy to try to make some suggestions :-)
