I presume 0.92 will be upgraded to kernel pl15* including a patch to the
ext2fs problem in the base level pl15. Also, in case you are considering
compiling in either the Mitsumi CD-ROM driver or QIC tape drivers in the
distribution kernel, you would be best advised to leave them out. Their
default address/IRQ settings conflict with permissable settings for other
devices, i.e., adaptec 1542 scsi controller and wd80*3e ether card. They
can therefore erroneously detect the presence of the Mitsumi and QIC de-
vices, rendering the system inoperable.
