Re: Need german speaker to check translation of CLOWN info.

Hi John,

I reviewed your translation.  Basically it is ok althogh at several
places I would have used different english wording, but you should
know better. :)  I've added my comments.

The Kernel:

   The kernel used is 2.0.36 with "loop-root-patch", since 2.1
   (development-) kernel doesn't provide stability which is required

   Due to better networking performance it would however be wishful to
   switch to a 2.1 or even 2.2 kernel.
