Is this actually still necessary with the latest 2.4 kernels?  I thought
it was fixed in the more recent kernel-images.

Right now, the only other two subarches that really work are riscpc and
CATS.  RiscPC has its own special "easy install archive" and doesn't
support network booting in the sense that we're talking about here.  So,
rather than "non-NetWinder", you can probably just write "CATS".
