IMO the "stabilized" guide is once we have the info that's
currently in all the README.txt files and the website.  I've
already covered the devel info from web/, so now all we need is
the CG stub in Documentation/devel/ and me to process the doc, 
translator, and frog READMEs.

Plus another 2 weeks of build system debugging, more READMEs
found, anything from the wiki, etc.  But really, if it isn't in a
presentable state (ie worth telling to Frogs to look at it) in 3
weeks, it'll be because I get arrested at the border for having
long hair and using linux.

BTW, my first flight tomorrow is 13 hours, and the seats have
power.  So I'll have plenty of material to commit as soon as I
have an internet connection in Singapore.  :)

I've heard that it requires changing an option on the bios.  IIRC,
it didn't kick up to 900 mhz when I compiled a project for 45

It's over a year old so I'm pretty sure it's not under warranty.
Besides, that's not the issue -- this will be my only
communication with my family and friends.  I'd rather spend a day
without food than spend a day without email.

Now, when building this system I kept careful notes of what files
I changed, what packages I installed, and make a shell script to
do everything.  So in theory, I could buy a new eeepc, run my
script, and assuming I had a good internet connection, have my
computer back to normal in an hour... but I'd rather never have to
use that.  :)
