	when installing 1.1, I wanted to use the ccd driver. I didn't
	expect the install floppies to have it, but I was surprised to
	find that even the full GENERIC* kernels didn't have it.
	Fortunately I was just adding ccd devices to a system, but I
	can see problems in the future where people have files
	critical to the upgrade process on ccd partitions and not
	being able to access them.

	boot a GENERIC* kernel on anything but atari & hp300, and
	notice the lack of ccd support

	add the following line to /sys/arch/*/conf/GENERIC* if not present:
		pseudo-device	ccd	4
