I have upgraded the kernel, and the binaries to the June 16 snapshot Curt
Sampson mentioned on the list the other day.

One problem:

Getting lots of these, on the console only:

Warning: processor correctable error encountered.

I had thought that it was related to running mismatched kernel and bin's,
as I was using the recent kernel you put on floppy with the 1.2 disk image
distribution.  But they didn't go away after I untarred the new binary
snapshot.  Any ideas what this is from?

Also, I seem to be having trouble with the syntax for ifconfig ep0.

If I just do ifconfig ep0 (ip address) it seems to set up the card for

>From the man pages for ifconfig and ep, it looked the new syntax is
something like: 

ifconfig ep0 inet (ipaddress) media 10baseT

But this yields the error:

ifconfig: unknown media subtype.

I can't quite seem to get the right arguments to ifconfig...
