yeah i realise it's beta, but for most all of them this is their first
foray into a beta os, i've built the same rawhide i586 kernel without
the debugging enabled and installed it today on the machines of the main
moaners to see if that keeps them happy, if not i will try an i686
kernel for them instead, but i need to knock up a spec with the kernel
trimmed down for usage just on the aoa anyway so it's not a problem.
thanks again for your help on this matter
