Could you possibly pass on a more detailed description of what you did 
to create your custom miniinst image?  Going by the mail on this thread, 
it doesn't look like anybody has the time/bandwidth to provide a 
bootable disk image that others can download. I've done a make release 
(built for i386 on i386) before and cross-compile on both i386, amd64, 
but creating an amd64 image on an i386 machine (in a clean way) is a 
protracted PITA, as I don't see how you can create a -RELEASE quality 
image for amd64 on a plain old i386 box.  If us disgruntled Compaq 
presario owners could contribute towards making a short script for 
building an experimental boot image on the 386, it would be easier for 
more folks to test the all the kernel patches/tweaks that have been 
floating around.
