	That's not _all_ your missing ;-)

	Unless you have the 1985 Seismo (or Harvard - depends where you
	got the tape from) update tape to 2.9 the networking code won't
	compile much less run.  Been there, done that.  It was a fun couple
	weeks coming to the realization that the networking code hadn't
	been fully integrated and compiled in 2.9

	I believe the 2.9-Seismo update is in the PUPS archive (should be
	on the CD but my memory isn't ECC these days ;-)).  It's a fairly
	painful upgrade process because it changes the a.out header format
	for overlaid processes (goes from 7 to 15 overlays).  If you're not
	real careful you'll have (as I did ;-)) a real mess:  can't finish
	the upgrade because the old kernel doesn't support the new overlaid
	processes but you can't build a new kernel because doing so needs
	those processes.  Something like that.  It was "interesting" ;)
