At the moment it is, but the current development version of slink_cd fixes
this. I was going to wait a little longer for some m68k/alpha patches
before releasing, but I can see this may be difficult. If I get the
pre-1.08 to you, can you make some new images Phil?

Actually, while I think about it - are we just looking for i386, or do we
want to do other arches too? They're a little bit behind...
