Doug
Any more news on this, or did the hackers decide it was too one-off (I
hope not. Although I've got the 2.2.6 minimal system up, I'm  left with
an essentially-unused disk set for 2.2.5! the installation script for
2.2.6 looks to need some work to pick up eg the xf86 files from the
2.2.5 distribution... I could be cunning, but just at present I'm
sticking with my trusty(?) Linux distribution, I'm afraid)
