The link for the remote debugging boot option (oskit-boot.txt)
under Booting OSKit-Mach is broken.  I would propose the following
patch to correct this link to a live location:

--- oskit-mach.texi.orig        Tue Oct  9 11:15:14 2001
+++ oskit-mach.texi     Tue Oct  9 11:16:08 2001
@@ -344,7 +344,7 @@ Assuming all of this worked successfully
 start debugging oskit-mach.  If you have a second machine with a couple
 of serial cables, the preferred method is remote debugging using GDB.
 That is outside the scope of this document, though; see
 for a treatment of that topic.
