www.d.o: S/390 port page update - please review



Hello,

The d-www@l.d.o list was alerted that the information on your port page
was outdated. I have done a basic update of the page as shown below.
Please review.

My feeling is that other information on the page may be outdated/obsolete
as well. It would be nice if someone more familiar with the port and its
history could review.

Cheers,
FJP

 <h2>Status</h2>

-<p>S/390 is now a supported Debian architecture! </p>
+<p>S/390 has been an officially  supported Debian architecture since the release
+of Debian 3.0 (woody).</p>

-<p>The normal Debian channels for acquiring installation media should
-have S/390 available shortly, now that Debian 3.0 (woody) is released.</p>
+<p>For instructions on installing Debian, see the
+<a href="$(HOME)/releases/stable/s390/">Installation Guide</a>.
+Unfortunately for Sarge it is not possible to ipl the installation system off
+an installation CD, but several other installation methods are supported. Support
+to ipl off an installation CD has been added back in the version of the installer
+that will be released with Etch.</p>

-<p>The first version of the boot-floppies that supported s390 was 3.0.14
-using kernel 2.4.7. Newer
-<a href="ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/woody/main/disks-s390/current/";>
-boot-floppies</a> since 3.0.18 use kernel 2.4.16
-which also supports the ext3 journaling file system on s390. There is also
-support for the non-free
-<a href="http://www10.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/linux390/";>OCO
-modules from IBM</a> using a second initial RAM disk but these modules are
-not distributed by Debian and probably never will be.</p>
