Wait a minute!

2.0.36 requires a new isdnutils (pre 3.0 release). Paul Slootman has made
such a package (unofficially). Isdntools prior to 3.0 _won't_ work with
2.0.26 kernel.

(kernel 2.0.36 has isdnctrl feature "dialmode", which is not supported by
isdnutils prior to 3.0. It is switched off by default, so all isdn lines
will refuse to build a connection with the new kernel).

As much as I welcome the new aic driver, let's make sure that we don't break
