I am uploading BETA4/alpha to ftp-master right now so you should see
the ISOs appear on the ftp mirrors.

MD5 (5.3-BETA4-alpha-bootonly.iso) = 110759b019b8e30d05092bd14b647459
MD5 (5.3-BETA4-alpha-disc2.iso) = c01bda0e84d6d6f19557a625fe35d31e
MD5 (5.3-BETA4-alpha-miniinst.iso) = cfd548a7fe706ba271ef54b4b6e56365

Given some time and access to a package set I might be crazy enough to
do a disc1 as well.  The MD5s above are for package-less ISOs.

Most notable change might be for those who have tga(4) cards in their
machines.  GENERIC no longer has tga(4) so your box should no longer
panic on boot.  So you can install BETA4 (I hope) and let us know how it

have fun,
