I've obtained linux-latest.tar.gz, palo-latest.tar.gz and 
xc-latest.tar.gz Is there anything I should explicitly look to change in
the kernel config, or is the CPU and the other goodies right for what I
presume is a 725/50?

I'll hopefully get the current kernel building soon. Next up I'll have
to find some terminators and T-pieces to get my network going. I hope to
have some time to test the patch next weekend.

Perhaps Thomas Marteau will find some time to test it before I do?

Regards,

Albert
