Yes, I definitly vote for the release of floppy images too! In my case its the SCSI-CD drives what do not allow me to boot from a CD.

It might be old fashioned, but its very easy just to boot the floppy and then install all over ftp! I guess there are still a couple of systems (old
+laptops, servers) which require it.
