 As for a matter of fact: I dislike the current release of the GENERIC
kernel. It's not GENERIC at all. It lacks of ISO-FS, ethernet support
and other (important) stuff. I don't believe that trying to leave the 
kernels size below 1MB is a reason to disable (ie. not compile) that stuff.

 I think it is more reasonable to distribute 4 kinds of kernels:

 one GENERIC kernel with _everything_ intus.
 an A3000 kernel w/o any of the other SCSI drivers, no SUN, HP, etc.
 an A4000/1200 only kernel, with IDE, no SCSI (needs to be discussed), no Sun,
HP support, etc.
 an GENERIC-lite, with all SCSI and IDE drivers, no ethernet, no ISO,
no ADOS, no nothing :-)

 On your marks...
