Sorry it took so long to comment.

Now that struct llc is working right, netatalk should be working.

There's a new version of the netatalk user code, on toccata
This new beta includes a bug fix from Christos, and a compromise to get
netatalk to compile w/o /usr/include/netatalk/endian.h (as we already
always include endian support).

I recomend that everyone using the netatalk souce upgrade to beta2. The
two bug fixes in atalkd are important. There is also a patch kit which
just contais the changed files.

Take care,
