Please contact me off list so I can bring you up to speed on the remote
access bridge, so we can bundle that in as well.
Take care,

Subject: Re: Status of Linux starter kit

I am the guy who is taking care of all this. I had some problems because I
realised that the networking model would be a big trouble for people who
aren't behind a router, so I had to spend some time figuring out how to
achieve this.
I am still testing, and planning to contact Sina asking for a password to
upload the files shortly.
In the meantime, only a version of slackware fully functional, but without
any graphical stuf, to be used as a native developement of daemons and
server side programming will be available. The speakupmodified thing will
still take sometime to be completed. The vmware scripts are ready, at least
version 1.0. I will write documentation for them, but I don't think I'll
have time to learn how to use the jsx installer. If you could pack the files
for me I would be gratefull.

When you say "I wrote a program that crashed Windows," people just stare at
you blankly and say "Hey, I got those with the system, for free."
