I think we're in phase error here. Without going back and checking
exactly who said what (I've moved old mail off-line already, checking
is not a big problem but I feel it's not worth the effort, and not the
central thing here anyway), I'm talking about why I was submitting
this to boot-floppies in the first place. You said something I
interpreted as a mild flame for sending this to the wrong place, and
my reply to that is that I was simply following instructions. If
that's still a problem then the instructions are wrong, and I'll
gladly resubmit this as a bug report against those instructions.
Hope this helps clear things up (more than it confuses things further :-)
