Excellent - Note that I've done a fairly large update on the SRM HOWTO,
which is in the "0.6" aboot that I made, which has found its way onto

Greg: from the sounds of it, I may have become the de-facto upstream
maintainer of aboot - the stuff that went to alphalinux.org has debian
packages and packaging info, but it's a bit misleading, as it's not an
official Debian package, and you are still the Debian maintainer, and
I don't want to give the impression of "hijacking" the package :)

I'd like to try to merge your patches and this version (as well as
some other changes - I'm going to redo the ISO and UFS support using
the MILO code and possibly the kernel UFS code since there may be a
GPL conflict with the UFS code) so we can have an official
Debian and upstream aboot 0.6 in potato.
