Regarding a Slinky-Test there are not so many differences between
installing FC3-test3 and FC3.

But you also could take the Slinky-0.4.06-devel tree and replace the
RPM-GPG-KEYs and the package-lists all_packages.disc[1234] with the
corresponding files from Slinky-0.4.05 that refer to FC3-test3.
Then make a new boot floppy with makedisk.sh.

One thing that I already wanted to add is the ability to read the
package-lists not only from the booting-system but also from an
external device.
