Hi Bill --

Your lucky day may be at hand -- I've been struggling to get my herd of 
Soekris 4501s running again and thought the process of updating from BSD 
4 to 9 would be "simple."  Well, several months later I have a working 
CF image and am just getting the four 4501s Soekris's (Soekri?) running 
again today.

I had to do some hand tweaking on the images to make things work, so I 
don't feel comfortable sending the config files, but I am happy to make 
the image available to you -- you could either snail-mail me a 2GB CF 
card, or we could see how much the image compresses and I can host it on 
febo.com.

John
