  This Script will help you in creating bootable images for your Soekris
  hardware. It has its limitations due to that it is only a shell
  script. Here is what it is capable of Doing for you:
        - Makes an image from the version of OS that you are currently
          building from. (No Need in grabbing etxXX.tgz or baseXX.tgz
          anymore)
        - Function to either write directly to your CF or make an image
          that can be dd'd at a later time.
        - Customize the configs before the image is created.
	- Archive configs, ssh_host keys, and kernels.
        - And much much more...

  The idea behind this work came from Chris Cappuccio <chris@nmedia.net> at
  his webpage http://www.nmedia.net/~chris/soekris, and we thank him for
  information on that website that spring boarded the idea of creating this.

  The Quick and dirty info needed to make a null modem cable for your
  Soekris. This information was found at the following URL
  http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Heights/5704/serial1.html 
  and the individual gets full credit. I am only supplying the portion here
  if for some reason you do not have internet access.

  More, the "o" characters represent holes, the "." characters 
  represent pins.

  Pin numbers


  Each pin has a number assigned to it.  When connecting null modem, 
  for example, it is important to know these numbers in order to select

  Null Modem

  Below is a chart of what pins go to what on the other end. 
  Only 8 pins are used in a null modem, therefore I will 
  only show those eight here.
