 Hello Fellas....:)

   Thanks a lot for holding me hand all the way towards having gnu-linux
installed on the Soekris.

   Especially thanks to Chris and Felix for all the help bestowed.I
think for all the efforts i have put in installing gnu-linux the
community deserves a HOWTO showcasing a STEP-BY-STEP HOWTO for the same.

   It sure has drained me out..:)

Trevor
