        - work out which partition to stick the system
            default is /fip
        - which logon will be used to run Fip
    1. make a temporary queue on a partition with enough room (df)
        copy contents of the Fip diskettes to this queue
        usually using tar :
        mkdir /tmp/wotho
        cd /tmp/wotho
        ..for each diskette ...
            tar xvf /dev/rfd0           (not solaris)
        or  tar xvf /vol/dev/rdiskette0/un*     (solaris)
            eject

    2. run fipinstall
        do NOT cd out of the temp queue before running fipinstall as it MUST be in
the same queue as all the other files.

    3. NOTE this does NOT setup crontab, .cshrc, startup which should be done
manually after
