VIBS and 1.44MB floppies

The AVTS rewrite last year eliminated need to store bloated .mdb files on the floppy media, meaning normal 1.44MB disks (and drives) could be used instead of the 120MB superdisks.  This also meant 10kb .dbf files could be emailed to-and-fro instead of 50Mb .mdb files.  There was much rejoicing.
Enter VIBS.  Now audio tracks are stored for each race and candidate, and although compressed, 1.44 does not buy you a lot of audio.
Conclusion:  make sure you are using superdisks and superdrives in VIBS units.
