Thank you. 2.2.8 had aboot problems on UP2000 (couldn't install aboot in 2MB
blank space at the start of the disk), but this corrects that problem and AFAICT
installs everything successfully.
However, there's at least one typo (patch attached), and I think lx164 needs a
separate kernel to boot from MILO. I tried installing today, and after giving
the boot command (and escape to boot immediately) it loaded from the disk, gave
a row of hyphens, and hung.
Getting there... :-)
