Question How-to install Mandrake 10 from USB memory stick via network

Any idea how I can install mdk10 on a machine with just a USB slot and a harddisk?
So installation will come through network, but how to bootstrap that?

I figured I could boot with a network.img from a USB memory stick, but problem is that it is split in two, network.img and network_drivers.img. (it did go as far as asking me to insert the network_drivers floppy...)

I bet if there was a 2.88Mb image with the drivers included, it would work.

I think in this day and age floppy disk support should be replaced/augmented with usb memstick support. It has been years since I bought a PC which even had a floppy disk.

So, any hints on how to merge network.img and network_drivers.img into one?
