Should we try to get all the different clock programs merged together?
I'm not sure that hwclock.sh even works on the NetWinder - I thought
that Corel had a different one.

I remember there was a problem with setserial on the NetWinder too.

Yeah, I left it out because the NetWinder doesn't have a floppy.  :-)

I think the proper thing to do with building a bootable image would be
to modify the boot-floppies package to build it.  I just put the
current image together manually, so I missed a lot of dumb things.

That would be cool.

We should put together some installation instructions.
