I've been working on an alternate installer, which does not use anaconda 
at all, for the eeepc since we need to change a lot of default stuff in 
order to get the basic stuff working in a reasonable manner.

Also, is this atl2 ko based on the one that I had built sometime back or 
is this from the 2.x version ? if so, is it stable enough to rebase onto 
  in the 2.6.18 code ?

PS: please dont crosspost.
