SD! Hi Simon,
SD! I assume, you wanted to post this to owl-users (but mistyped the list
SD! address as @owl instead of @lists), so I'll reply CC'ing the list.

I *wondered* where my mail had gone ;-)

SD! Neither.  It's a piece of work on Owl that is waiting for a volunteer
SD! to be completed.  This has been once discussed on owl-devel and Pedro
SD! Inacio wanted to do it, but I don't think he ever did.
SD! This work involves certain updates to the owl-cdrom package and more.
SD! It is possible that I will just do it myself eventually, but so far I
SD! have too many higher priority things to do and those I definitely can't
SD! delegate to someone else.  So I leave this one for others.

Yes.  I'm having some success using a Suse CDROM, installing a base system
on what will be /home and chrooting my way thru a make installworld.  It's
working so far, even if my little SS10 is *still* building a kernel...

Thanks for the info.  If I find an easier way to do it I'll be sure to let
people know.  I'm not confident I could invent a magic installer, which
would be the best solution ;-)

One day I'll stop looking for boxes to Owl'ise round here......
