Build image ot read config from floppy

pickseed
I''m trying to build a bootable iso image of thinstation 2.1.1 that works
just like the LiveCD.  The reason I want to build my own image is because
the Prebuilt does not include the packaged that I need.  I've tried many
different things, but cannot seem to get it to read from the floppy.  It
always tries to read from the network.  Can someone please give me a quick
"how-to" on this?  I just need to know what conf files to edit and where.  

Also, am I putting everything in the right place?  When I build the image, I
have build.conf and thinstation.conf.buildtime in the same directory as the
build execuatble.  In thinstation.conf.buildtime, I leave everything like it
is in thinstation.conf.example, except I changed STORAGE_PATH to
/dev/floppy.  Is there something I missed?

The floppy mount point is:

/mnt/floppy

Have

NET_USE_TFTP=Off

Also make sure that the floppy contains the directory thinstation.profile
and that you in this have the file thinstation.conf.user

thinstation.conf.buildtime & build.conf are ONLY used at build time. Any
parameter settings etc. in thisntation.conf.buildtime will be included in the
generated initrd (which is on the iso).

The thinstation.conf.user file is what is looked at locally.

See Mike's note re: NET_USE_TFTP (and depending on your setup NET_USE_DHCP).
