Subject[semi-OT] Historic Linux Kernels.

so read that (INSTALL-0.11) too.

none of these things are included in linux-0.11.tar.gz/bz2

interested in what linux went through in early development beyond just
reading about it, I prefer to actually see these things for myself :)

So does anyone have these two things? (the .11 release notes/install
instructions and boot/root diskette) If so, I'd be grateful if you could
either point me to them, or email them to me (
