Re: CATS success

That's my plan.  The CATS machine doesn't actually belong to me though, and it 
may need to be returned to its rightful owners at some point in which case 
I'll be reduced to only using the NetWinder again.  I'm planning to install 
Debian on that machine as well though.

I'd be quite happy to deal with kernel compiles.  I already end up building 
kernels for most machines quite regularly and making them into a package 
shouldn't be any big deal.  Do Debian have any policy about which 
configuration options are usually set for kernels?

(No, I haven't registered as a Debian developer.  I guess I could do so though 
I'd formed the impression that there was a fair amount of bureaucracy and 
general strife involved.)

I'll send the .config shortly.  A kernel with support for more than one 
platform will be slightly larger and slower than one compiled specifically for 
one machine, but I don't think the performance difference will be noticeable 
in use.
