Those images were not generated with the packages in Slink, but with a
seperate source package that I never uploaded because it was sparc
specific. It's not possible to get an "official" package to generate
an Ultra kernel because kpkg-make is not flexible enough.
Ok, my plan is to make a kernel-source-sparc-2.2.1 package that only
generates the two kernel-image packages. It will suffice as an
interim measure. Any objections (e.g. volunteers to do it
differently) should speak now.
The images will be available tomorrow after the build finishes and I
can test them.

I think can do this. (I can definitely do the binary CD's, I'm not
100% sure I can dig up the space for a complete archive to do the
Let me know what is needed and when.
