All my packages reside on Chris' beezer.med.miami.edu, probably Mike's
ones are there as well.

I hope it is possible to use Pasi's disk set.

I only have a set of patches I have proposed to use.  No binary kernel
images have been built yet using those patches (except for AS255, which I
use myself).  Pasi has compiled a lot of kernel images, untested though.
Custom MILO is not needed.  Be aware that most, if not all, MILOs are
unable to read kernel images from partitions larger than 2 Gb.
