Hi Mark,

  I think there's a binary mismatch between the new loader and
the syscons'd-kernel - "boot -s" works fine on an up-to-date
kernel. But at least there's workarounds - the other is to
"set boot_single=yes".

  Don't forget to disable sendmail as per the instructions. I've
still to track down that problem. Also, with the openfirmware
console, full-screen editing really doesn't work. It's almost
better to edit the files offline, manually config the net interface
and ftp them across.
