I think I have met this fellow somewhere. Is his name Dave or something
like that? If I remember rightly, he just did a Linux port for some other
machine (forget) and gave a speech about it at the Linux Convention in
North Carolina a few months back.

As for the 3B2 port, what kind of 3B2 are we talking about? 300/400
series or more closer to a 1000?
