Hi Brennan,
something misterious is happening here. One more week of this kind and we have 
a full team running. :)
If you find enough time, could you please send a small report what could be 
done successfully when using our netstack (ping, telnet, ftp, Net+)? 
Unfortunately, I do not have a network anymore (what am I doing here then? ;), 
thus I can only test PPP (which does not work...because of a bug in the 
netstack, I hope ;).

Thank you and I wish to all of you a happy new year.

Brennan here.  It's been awhile (my previous semester of school was
demanding) but I'm back at it.  I have many machines on a local
network, and I plan to start debugging the stack again (not that I
got that far before, but...)

Also, I'm starting to write up a Getting Started document to help new

1. Get the source from CVS
2. run jam
3. create the boot floppy

When I get that document nice and shiny, I will submit it for peer
