Do you recommend the fsmlabs 2.4.1 kernels? I tried the ftp source: linuxppc-2.4.1.snap.tar.gz *what is snap?) but I get an end-of-file
error after tar zxvf. I've tried using bitkeeper, but after following the bitkeeper instructions:

bk clone bk:// linuxppc_2_4

nothing happens, I just get an immediate return to the command line. (I've never used bitkeeper, so maybe I need to do something else?)

I appreciate ANY help. I've been able to install the 2.4.1 rpm from linuxppc but would like to recompile airport (do I need to recompile this
for 2.4 or is it built in?) and add in the keyspan usb devices.
