I hope this makes it back to you in time : I'm running my second install
with these (actually 7am ??) images.
Very close! FTP install is still looking for <set>.tgz, and hangs
if it doesn't find it. (ie. FTP sites with <set>.xx break it)
FTP's to nonfunctioning hosts now time out OK, this is good 8)
In the post-install configuration, there's a menu (with NFS client/server
options on it) that is remeniscent of the old options menu - items
that should have [X] fields but dont.
If you nominate to be an NFS server, the install starts vi on /etc/exports,
but it comes up on the debug screen and you can't type to it.

Timezone stuff seems still broken with wall CMOS clocks. Try entering a clock
value, nominate that clock time is wall time, then say that you're
in South Australia. The 'is this OK' time will be a few hours earlier
than the time that you've entered. I can't speak for other locations,
as I haven't been travelling all that much the last few days 8)

Indeed. _PLEASE_ fix the FTP install to handle <550 File not found>
messages 8) (another install just hung 8( )
Mondo congrats to the team.
