I have a new kernel compiled for the UDB's, but haven't gotten to the
Avantis yet.  I'll try to get that one done and up tomorrow, if you don't
mind a development kernel.  If you want to use the 2.0 kernels, get the
ones from the 1997-10-05 directory, if possible.  The previous batch,
although not "not stable" are 2.0.29 while I believe the 10-05 batch to be
slightly newer and more tailoured to the systems than the prior batch was
(also, the 08-12 kernels were compiled by the previous "boot-disk"

Thanks for the info/additions...I haven't heard from the nano-HOWTO author
recently, so I'll drop an email with some revisions to him later on.  If I
don't hear back, I'll take over the nano-HOWTO and update it myself.
