Packages for Debian 3.0 (Alpha 2)

I have prepared some packages that update some packages that are not or
only in an older version in Debian 3.0r0. Please read [1] for more
information (and read the FAQ before sending mails to me).

I try my best to avoid problems with both installing these packages on a
Debian 3.0 and upgrading with these packages installed to Debian 3.1.

The updated kernel packages contain a fix for a DoS attack that enables
every user to crash the computer [2]. If you run older kernels on a
computer where you don't fully trust all users it's highly recommended
that you upgrade your kernel.

It's a known problem that the pcmcia-modules-2.4.19-* pacakges are
currently not installable, this will be fixed in Alpha 3.

       "Is there not promise of rain?" Ling Tan asked suddenly out
        of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
