Well I did get the 0.1.5 patch and I applied it. It did not seem
to help any. I had to merge things by hand at some parts since
the benh kernel did already have some stuff in there.
Can I get a copy of the 0.1.5 instead of a patch so we can be sure
we are on the same page.
Ben, do you have any an email of someone that has it working
so we can try to compare some things?
