I've got the netatalk port in a position where I think it's ready
for a more-vigorous beta testing, and I'm wondering if some of
y'all would be interested.

The package consists of a how-to, ksrc12 patches, src12 patches, and
a patched version of netatalk1.4b2. The files live at: .

The patches are relative to 1.2 as until recently I didn't have
cvs set up to track current and preserve my changes. After the
vm changes have a chance to shake out, I want to catch up to current.

I'd appreciate any input on what will need changing (and suggstions
on how to) to get it into current.

Known bugs: Ethertalk phase 1 doesn't work yet. When ever I try t
add a phase 1 address, the routing table code says the address
exists. I don't understand why (other than the fact some allocator
returns 0).

Also, netatalk uses its own arp code to do aarp (Appletalk ARP).
It'd be cool to use the new arp stuff, but I don't know how to
do that yet. :-)
