I put it to a SD-partition, together with 2.2.28 kernel and modules. It
started well. I was too slow to get into the settings  to turn off the
suspend, so I had to remove battery and boot again. After entering the PIN,
I tried to make a call - with no success. Then I tried to get WLAN to work -
with no success either. So I booted back into SHR, where everything works
like a charm.

I'm awaiting your (Marcus') next announcment on March 31 23:59. Until then
back to whining.
