The reason that this new version of silo is not yet in the archive is that 
it has a regression. When I tested it on my Ultra 10, I noticed that it 
did not respect the timeout setting I have in my silo.conf. It just kept 
sitting there waiting for input.

Jurij said yesterday on IRC that with the CD he created silo did not 
prompt for input at all, but just booted. That also is not correct 
behavior.

I've sent a mail to Ben Collins about the first point, but there was no 
reply yet.
