config.old is the old-style config program. It's a completely different
configuration model than new config...
I've been slowly re-writing bits and pieces of the hp300 port so that it
can use new config. Slow going, at times. In a private devel tree, the
framebuffer drivers, serial drivers, and LANCE driver are all converted
to new config. I can boot multi-user diskless. Now, time to re-write
the dma, hp-ib, and scsi drivers.
Anyhow, you just basically need to use config.old...
