Yes, apparently the tar archive at sun-lamp was newer than the one I had.
I am recompiling now.

Yes, the harddrive seemed to work (your displaymode was not visible on my

it should be the right one. I guess when I get a kernel to work (apart from
my old 1.0 beta one) I should take a look att the sup utility.
