Well I decided it was time to get up to date on my TiBook.

So I went out and bought a copy of Yellow Dog and got apt-get installed and
started hacking.  After some switching pain I got it up and running but found
that I needed a newer kernel to get the networking stuff to work.

no problem...  I rsync'ed Bens tree built and rebooted...

There are 2 problems.

1) My Microdrive which I had hacked in does not work any more.  What is the
   status of the ide-cs driver?  Anyone know?  It is different than when I got
   it to work before and I am not sure where to begin again.

2) m3mirror does not work?  This one really puzzles me.  lcd:0 turns off the
   LCD screen but crt:1 does not turn on the outside monitor.  I rebooted into
   Mac OS and the external port works.  The only thing I can think of is that I
   did use the S-video port on Mac OS to show some pictures.  Is there
   something in OF which Mac OS would set which would make the external port
   not work with m3mirror?
