You have only to use one floppy (with scsi modules). After mounting
/src from CDROM you don't need floppies any more.

Maybe we should add SCSI boot image to the CDROM too. New BIOSes
should give user a choice of the boot image. But will all SCSI driver
fit on one floppy image? But AFAIK hard-disk images can also be used
for making bootable-CDROMS. 
Will such CDROM work on any machine, with any BIOS?
