No, sorry.  The installer itself is configured to use a recent
kernel, the rest is as before RedHat 9.  These two disks are mainly
for testing localized keymaps, an actual busybox with integrated fdisk
and to show if the program dialog would work for the dialoges.  But
all those things can be tested with disk1 and without actually
installing at all.
