You are right. But in the future? What happen when we cannot found
some driver for muLinux?
And what you think about PCMCIA? new pcmcia package will work anyway
with 2.0.36 kernel? I don't know.

I would like the new kernel for two reasons:

        1) better sound support: a module with irq selectable at run-time,
                I hope. We can to forget the SB irq=5/7 problem
        2) NT file system access.

(PC-speaker still unsupported in new kernel!)

Anycase, don't worry yourself: this a long term question.

non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
