I loaded the kinetic kernel about a week and a half ago 
and it really has  improved the usability.

I was working on trying to change the splash image at 
boot, but the make fails when I run make mbr against the 
latest snapshot. I get an mbr.elf file, but no .rom file. 
I am not a developer, just a sys admin, so compiling is 
new to me. Hopefully someone will work up some more 
complete compiling instructions for people without a 
developer background.

  I downloaded the zip file, unpacked it and copied the 
kernel.elf to the
  SD card. That's all I need to do right?
  I am asking because I don't see a dramtic change in the
  (I do see the kinetic effect, if I quickly move my 
bak and forth)
  Anyway, scrolling is still very good. :-)
