Hi Tony,

Yup looks real easy ...... however I'd wait for the Eric/Jim 
implementation of K12ltsp with the 2.6 kernel. Having tried it myself 
for several days when 2.6 was released I can say that's it is not 
simple. During the selection of functions in the kernel I got several 
errors of libs missing... so I hunted them down, installed them to 
discover that they were not compatible with other libs & so on & so 

But if you're feeling heroic & want to forge ahead please let us all 
know how you fare  ;-)
