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...
