I wouldn't have admitted *that*.  :-)

It has to start somewhere.

Forgot one thing...kernel snapshots come from Dave Miller, and are
available at vger.rutgers.edu via FTP.  You can find them on 
ftp.redhat.com from our mirror as well.  Dave is working to sync with
Linus on 2.1, but that isn't complete yet, so 2.1 snapshots also still
need to come from vger.  Those are only for the really masochistic,
*especially* on the SPARC.  ;-)
