I can't speak for 5.x because I didn't really run it, but this worked
for 6.x a year ago: http://typo.submonkey.net/articles/2006/02/12/
The OP's note about adding the kernels line is definitely needed and I'll
fix that (though I would really love a PR for it), but for anything
else, you have to send hardware (a laptop or Soekris, I'm not fussy!) :)
That must be wonderful! I don't understand it at all.
