[Q] For people that say "I dont want to spend the $99 for the floppy"?

[A] Try making friends with a local Compaq dealer. The floppy drive is really
worth the extra money, but if you bought your Aero after Compaq announced
that they were going to bundle the floppy WITH the Aero on Nov 1, and call
COMPAQ and ask real nice you may get a free one shipped to you like I did.

[A] Well, I am still holding out without a floppy. You can install Linux on the
Aero without floppy (which I did, but 4 MB is too akward for X), or the ROMpaqs
(which I have not yet tried). Better spend that money on an Ethernet adapter...
