I honestly do not know how you would do that.  Is it possible for you to =
download the BIN distribution before all this happens?  and then just =
have the other machine install via NFL or something like that?

Hopefully someone else on the list has an answer.

	change installation target directory for installworld, right ? But
	how do I make this newly installed world boot itself after moving it
	to the other box ?
