SubjectRe: Linux-2.4.1-pre11

Hi Linus,
Sorry to bother you. I'm trying to find where you uploaded

I was on and and could not find it in the
/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4 or /pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/test-kernels/
directories. Is it somewhere different?

Also, Alan, I grabbed your patch-2.4.0-ac11.gz file from your directory on Does this contain the updated VIA IDE support that Linus
was talking about in the 2.4.1-pre11?

I'm thinking either hasn't posted the 2.4.1-pre11 or I totally
misunderstand the directory layout on

A URL to the right patch or, preferably, full source for 2.4.1-pre11 would
be great.
