JumpStart 1.4 beta test

A beta test version of JumpStart 1.4 is available. The finished version will be available soon. New features include:

* MILO support. You can now use JumpStart to help install Linux on AlphaBIOS/ARC machines.
* JumpStart 1.4 now fully supports installing Red Hat 7.
* Support for the upcoming Slackware Alpha distribution.
* Bugfixes!

Most of you will want to wait for the full version, but those of you who are brave and have a good knowlege of Linux already might want to give the beta a shot. There are a couple of known bugs in this release - please read the README, TODO, and BUGS files for more info. You can view these files by selecting the 'js-test' file module.
