I have managed to get a very basic version of links running on my box. It
was actually an option in build root, I just copied over the binary and it
works, I compiled it for 386, can't test it obviously but I believe it
should work. Do you want me to send you a copy? Also ifup usually segfaults,
but if I run it a few times I eventually get an IP address and can access my
network and the Internet. I'll try working on LILO, but it would be helpful
if I had a toolchain and compiler on the box.
