I know this has been a couple of days that I've let this slip... I'll take
care of it (hopefully) tonight.
In the meantime, you can get by with a bit of pain on 0.01d, which is in
the old subdir. I used that yesterday when I mistakenly reformatted by
entire Linux system. *sigh*. That was actually the first time I'd used
the installer, which is a bit odd, seeing as how I've been maintaining it.
There are definite strides in the right direction for never having to use
the installer again, though. I now understand how the initrd stuff works,
and have a start in puting in prom_initrd stuff.
The biggest thing we can do to further the project right now is to get
more people onboard with the fewest hassles possible. Getting a decent
install program is critical to it. initrd (or prom_initrd) is the right
solution to that.
