Well, maybe it's because Patrick Volkerding (sp?) thought that 1.3 is an
experimental kernel and woulnd't be appropriate for a final, "stable"

It won't boot up from my scsi drive. Do you mean boot up with the
bootdisk (i'm using the "ascsi" boot floppy)?

Typing "mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt" doesn't work. I get a "mount:wrong
fs type or bad superblock on /dev/fd0". Didn't someone on this newsgroup
say that you have to type in the real name of the floppydrive?

Thanks a lot for your help. Be glad to share whatever I know. What kind of
ethernet card are you using? I'm using the SMC EtherPower PCI card and
lord knows, I know it's going to be a multi-week effort..
