Ralf,

BTW, what should we use as system headers with glibc nowadays ? Should
it be old HardHat kernel-headers-2.1.100 or newer 2.2.x ?

Do you have the packages somewhere on the net ? I am personally
interested in disk packages (fdisk, msdostools &co.) and the packages
required in order to run 2.2 kernels. Old HardHat cfdisk, for example,
seems to create partitions in the big endian format. At least, the rest
see garbage after cfdisk creates a partition table.

Regards,
Gleb.
