This is fantastic news Mark, and well done guys to getting as far as you
have so soon. Is there any hope of the modified code being uploaded this
weekend still? I would love to get my hands on it and start hacking away
at a level I can understand :) To my mind the most useful part will be
getting the networking stack fully functional to be able to mount NFS
shares and try out different combinations of programs code and drivers.
Really fantastic progress guys. Let hope it is just the tip of the
iceberg as it were :)
