The latest boot-floppies 2.1.6 for m68k just arrived in Incoming; the
only thing I'd like to change (undiscovered blatant bugs aside) is
the VME and Mac kernels to 2.0.36 (Nick is doing the VME kernel
and I'll try to do the Mac part). After that, I'd consider switching
to boot-floppies 2.1.7 (if there's enough time until release).
