I don't think Floppy Disks are relevant at all. I doubt any of the
developers actually have a floppy drive to test.

For the boot helper CD..... I have no interest in getting it working,
I have asked people to provide me specific devices that have problems
and need the boot helper CD. The only one i've ever got back is newer
Mac's. I know what that problem is. For the rest no one has bothered
to send me the specs so I haven't bothered spending the time.
