I've recently heared (but not verified) that some
manufacturers provide floppy disk images that can
be used with floppies (if you have them) utilizing
a USB floppy disk drive to boot (selectable as boot
source at system startup). This way you don't waste
650 MB, only 1.44 MB for this one-time use... :-)
