Haven't looked over the stuff lately, but I seem to recall a discussion 
about the serial drivers being the reason the TC stuff couldn't be 
integrated with the usual install stuff. It'd break too many other machines.

Anyway, I'm planning on assembling a 1.5.1 release once it's out - shouldn't 
be too much drama to build a bootable ISO image.

In the meantime, everything I've played with so far can be found at:

There's a 1.5 ISO there, but I think it has problems. The cdhdtape image is 
known to work fine.
