was using was SanDisk.

If the maintainers of wisp-dist are on this list, perhaps they could 
increase the baud rate of the console port, as the graphical menus are 
pretty slow at 9600 baud.  38400 would be good, or the Soekris default of 
19200 would be better than 9600.  I realize that this breaks a bit of the 
standard of using 9600 baud, but the graphical menus run very slowly at
