Meh. The problem is, it's a 188 MHz box, so it takes about 8 hours to do so. 
Which i guess i can live with, but there is something i can't really live 
with - some time ago it started rebooting in the process. I suspect 
overheating, as the summer is coming, and i'm building the readmes right now 
(it's a rather warm day), so i should see whether that is a problem, or 
something else is/was. VMWare... I trade 8 hours and possible reboot for no 
reboot and 13 hours ;P So i was hoping for a way to do it on linux, but if 
you say it's much more effort than it's worth... Though i'm still somewhat 
tempted to give it a go.
