I am less certain about this one - this is generic Linux stuff.

Please do update me - my UDB's on the blink, but I am STILL waiting for
a lovely Miata or a PC164 (which of the two, by the way, is the better
creature to get for free or, at most, about US$400 - I am owed favours,
you see :-)?

I have been promised this by hdogan@griffin.cc.foi.hr... Hopefully soon.

Can _anyone_ write this? I've done this once but it was so painful that I
used the debug monitor to boot thereafter.

This I have on my page:


I will gladly incorporate any and all information, if anyone forwards it
to me...

Yes, please. Miata have had problems with the network card (the one I've
seen had, at least).

In all, I hope to find the time to work on that bugger of a UDB soonish.
