>From what I can see, the only non-chip hack that will work for my 1.6b box
is the hot swap hack. I should be able to do that one easy enough. My
question, which I have not been able to answer by googling (darn worm has
trashed half the links I want to look at), so I will ask you guys. Is there
any special code I need to load other than the usual files for any 1.6 box?
I would like to load xebian once I am done.

Thanks in advance,
