It would be nice if anybody out there was willing to help people get
started.  We for example said that we more than happy to help debug
the problem with hangs during disk access on 3100s, if somebody would
just tell us what we needed to do, but apparently nobody thought it
was worth the trouble.  We'd also be willing to help with this, but
since that kernel doesn't last more than 2 minutes without hanging on
our 3100, there isn't much we can do.
