You know that I need patches and the config file to build a kernel-image. 
Or you build a kernel-image?
Maybe for once we could have the kernel-image used in the boot-floppies also
in the distribution, but anyway I need a kernel-image package, there is
absolutely no way to build boot-floppies with this kernel without the
kernel-image package.

If you fix 2.2.16 so that it runs stable on mac, atari and amiga, we can use
it. But as long as I build the m68k boot-floppies I prefer to have a kernel
which has been tested a little and is working on the machines I have access

BTW I am uploading a new test build of the 2.2.18 boot-floppies to
right now. But give it a few minutes until I arranged things correctly.
