Hi Don,

Hopefully it will be uploaded by the end of today. I have created a v1 release which has got a
kernel that boots and working USB, although not NFS mounts as the shell is somewhat broken :-(.
The next step for me is to get the LCD up and running and then sound (I would like my E3 to play
my MP3's while I work on it :-). After that I guess I will either try to fix the shell problem or
try to build microwindows/nano-X.
