I seem to remember trying those options, and failing. However, I don't
recall for sure, and as I haven't actually tried it in some weeks perhaps
I will take a little time on my P90 at work to build a kernel and fire it
up. :)

Actually I would be surprised tho if it works on the DLC, just because its
a strange motherboard that reportedly had problems before I had it. Having
said that, I do have Linsux working on an 80meg drive on it, my gf uses it 
to telnet .. :)

I would look forward to having that linuxdoom emulation tho .. that's mostly
what I would gain in an upgrade on my home machine. :)
