Was actually much nicer than when I last looked at Linux sw-raid, back in
the .50 days.
Why the trepidation?

I'm dumb. I was thinking the system.map needed to be on the floppy for aboot
to work. I just made an ext2 boot floppy with aboot on it, built most
everything as modules, and configured aboot to pass root=/dev/md0 as a
kernel parameters and it took right off. All that needs to be on the floppy
is the aboot boot block, loader, aboot.conf and kernel. No ramdisk needed.
