What problematic versions of MILO? I haven't had any problems with MILO run
from SRM at all. I'm currently using my own version of MILO which is actually
cetus' MILO from 19990302 compiled against 2.0.35 with some of my patched to
the TGA driver in it.

I advise against the above, my experience is that I could not get either a 2.0
or 2.1/2.2 kernel to boot using SRM/aboot. I would like to know if someone is
using this successfuly.

Also, 2.2 compiled for SRM will just hang on my Avanti box (see related posts
on this list previously).

I'll check it out at home this evening and let you know.
