I am just wondering when this release will be merged in the tree for easy downloading. I am looking for a version
of PPC linux that deals well with IDE disk on my MTX board.

I have tried the 2.3.99.pre3 (from, of 24 mars), I could not
even compile it on my MTX 603 machine which works well with 2.2.13,
except for IDE disks.

The compile error is about ncr53c8xx.c with 'base_io' not defined.
