Ah sorry for the confusion.  I have to netboot/nfs root this machine in
order to get it up and running (no hard drive in it), so getting an etch
install will just take a little time for me to get setup, but I would be
glad to.
For the ubuntu specific information, we are using your guys' 0.8.0-5 with a
minor patch related to dropping libsvga.  We are on a 2.6.17 kernel.

I'll provide etch specific information soon.
