pre-2007.0 Test CD

Tobias Scherbaum
Hi *,

a new (and probably the last) pre-2007.0 test-cd is up and waiting for
you to test it on your boxes. Grab it here:

Hello Tobias,

that's good to hear/see.

I'll try to do some tests with this on my C180 and will report back till

That machine lacks a CDROM, I assume I can boot the image over the net?

Also, any areas you are especially interested in?
