I'm now testing the new stuff. The anonymous FTP server work well,
with a chroot in /home/ftp.

More users, in the past, noticed malfunctions in actual release, but
forgot a lot.

I added also a nice feature, via a little /bin/timeout C program:
when muLinux boot the user has a way to stop autoboot process, in
5 seconds.

If autoboot is stopped, the system load only the USR segment and
open a shell, without further delay. I call this "maintenance mode",
but is the full muLinux without any sort of configuration.
No other scripts are called in this phase: only a /etc/rc.maint

For Franz-Albert (VAN DEN BUSSCHE): please, be patient!
