I strongly recommend that anyone doing 8xx (or any PPC development)
use a PPC host of some type.  It is sooooo much easier.  No cross
development hassles, bytes in the proper world order, all of the
tools work......

As I said, if it isn't directly 8xx related, you can probably
read about it on the other lists as well.

I think so.  After working with 2.3.18, 2.2.5 just feels "old".
In particular there are some configuration changes that work better
in the newer releases.

I wouldn't recommend 2.3.10 for anything right now.  In fact, I will
probably remove that tar image from the server the next time I visit.
