Subject"selectable kernel patches"
	About this type of downloading just the drivers, etc. you need
instead of the 6 meg tarred/feathered file, how about a dedicated telnet
server running a program that asks you which kernel-source you have now
and then asks you what drivers/modules/updates you want and then builds
you a patch file. Or maybe you could send an email to a mail-server and
get a document back from which you can select certain drivers/patches and
then mail it back (kind of like gophermail) and it could send you a
tarred/feathered/uuencoded file and install it on your system. Or another
approach might be to have a web page with a Java program ........ This
could easily happen if someone would just build the web page, write the
telnet program, or put up a mailserver.
