How to make a basic Debian bootable usbflash using floppy images?


Hi people,
Debian offers 5 floppy images to be able to install it over the internet. I want to make a bootable usbflash with those images, so I can get rid of cdroms and floppies.
Thanks for your help.
Hector

You can boot from USB stick, you do not need floppy.

I had to do that using the Daily build of the netinstaller so Debian would install on my Acer Netbook.. worked like a charm.
