Sorry to hear that you don't have the time to maintain this excellent hint. 
If no one else wants to do it, I'd be happy to have a go at maintaining it. 
I did use it to build my 486 firewall.  I'd probably simplify the hint a
bit to focus more a recommendation to use the Kernel uname hack, and I'd
like to add some ideas on cross mounting filestore to support networked
maintenance of slow machines.  Nic's detailed package by package
information, I'd move to an appendix.
Independant fire at will...:-)
