I'll consider it ;-)  Seriously, it will all be in the Jan. release,
but I'll see if I can make at least the compiler and some of my 
/usr/local/bin available r.s.n.

It still doesn't seem to quite work perfectly...  I haven't gotten
to that, yet, though.  Perhaps the hp300 effort will fix it before
I do.

Yes.  I'd be hard pressed to live w/o it, these days.  That's in my
/usr/local/bin, so will be part of an upload when I get to it...

gcc 2.4.5 is what sun-lamp's using.  That's what I'm running, too,
but it's a little broken right now.  It barfs on c++ code :-(  Again,
I haven't gotten to that, yet...

Hmmmm.  This is a wierd problem.  I've gotten a fix from a Steve that
seems to work, although I can't explain why.  It looks almost like
the disks are returning success for test unit ready for all luns.

> It's kept me from seeing whether the new kernel recognizes my optical drive

Prob. not yet.  Sorry.  It *might* work...
