Just another bit of good news:

v2.2.4 is up on
And soon will be finished uploading to

And the good news is that it seems that if you give it
a 'root=/blah' argument during bootup, it'll boot from
the internal scsi chain (at least it does so for us).

The file listing:

	patches.tgz - The files changed in the source tree (from vger)
	linux-pmac-2.2.1.ans.tgz - The modified source tree
	vmlinux(_2.2.4) - The compiled kernel
