1. Yggdrasil Fall 1994 Plug-and-Play Linux

I recently purchased the Fall 1994 version of Yggdrasil's Plug-and-Play
Linux. Enclosed was also the August edition of LINUX JOURNAL. Reading
through it, I found an article concerning the Summer release of PnP. In
it, publisher Phil Hughes commented that "[Yggdrasil] have ignored the
Linux file system standard." I have a number of questions about his
statement. First, what exactly are the differences between the two file
systems? Will it be a problem if (when) I decide to download or purchase
new Linux programs? Has Yggdrasil resolved these differences in the Fall
PnP? I want to remain as close to tht *standards* of the Linux development
community, so the answers to these questions are somewhat important.

to this group is more than adequate. I only have 3 weeks to decide if I
should keep PnP or send it back, so time is of the essence. Thanx!
