specific to Hartmut Kuptein


Sorry about sending this e-mail public, but the following 2 e-mail
addresses failed:


Being desparate, I am sending to the list as last resort to try and
find Hartmut.

>>I was given your name by Matt Porter, also of linux on ppc experience,

>>(1) the link on the debian web site for ibm rs6000 kernel images
>>sun4u.unicent.com: /pub/linux/rs6000/
