Good news :)  The Jensens (aka PC-150) is supported and Linux will run on
them.  The bad news :(  I don't think we have a precompiled kernel for
one.  If you have a "stock" Jensen (don't know much about them personally,
so I don't know what usually comes in one), let me know the configuration
and I'll generate a kernel and kernel config for it and upload it to

To the list: who's doing the kernels now?  Whomever it is, I'm planning on
precompiling some 2.1.72 kernels (seem stable so far) using the configs
off of master.  This will allow whomever wants them to use the
development kernels for setup if they'd like (since, as mentioned in a
previous message, PPP has some problems in 2.0 kernels on the Alpha..??).
I guess I just need to know if any mods need to be made to the configs
before I do this....
