And yet more boot floppies. In the past few hours I've uploaded a new yaboot package that is more likely to work on the boot floppies, a new set of kernel images (2.2.15pre19), and new PCMCIA modules for them.

I had to add mktemp to busybox in order to get ybin (YaBoot INstaller) to work on the boot floppies. This was my first run-in with the inside of busybox; I have a few ideas for how it could be improved, but it is an impressively well organized hack. Maybe I'll have time to contribute some of my ideas sometime soon.

Newt got updated today to fix the annoying Control-U brokenness; my congratulations to Enrique Zanardi for being the most responsive of all maintainers I've sent RC bugs to in weeks.

Here goes another build! This is a candidate for 2.2.12 release, if it works.
