I thought you could get NFS mount to work during install? (I could be

But if you have to go down this route again, PXEBoot of a rescue CD
would probably be less painful...

Waggling the cassette relay on a BBC micro, connecting the output to a
key on a BBC Master Compact and using that to transfer a ROM into
Sideways RAM?
