    Subject: README.tunnel

    Info in linux/drivers/net/README.tunnel doesn't seem to correspond
    with the actual new_tunnel.c being shipped. I'm thrashing my way
    slowly through anyhow, since I need it running, but it's chewing up
    lots of my time since I'm totally ignorant of modules and Linux
    kernel stuff... or was when I began, at least. Be nice if other
    people were saved the trouble!

    The first two example lines in README.tunnel are in fact both wrong,
    which would matter less if any other documentation existed :) ...

    insmod ipip.o; insmod tunnel.o
    won't work 'cause the file is now "new_tunnel.o". (Ok, mebbe anyone
    who can't figure that out deserves to suffer, but it's nicer to have
    it right...)
    ifconfig tunl pointopoint
    will fail because the devices are now numbered, apparently: One needs
    ifconfig tunl0 pointopoint
    Figuring that out took me several chronological weeks of cleaning off
    my disk and installing Debian completely from scratch to make sure
    nothing was trashed, updating to the very latest 2.0.x release to see
    if it was a recently fixed bug, trying tun1 instead of tunl on the
    assumption the doc had a typo (close, but no cigar!) &tc...
    I think I'll take a week's vacation before tackling line three in the
    docs :)
