2009-07-24 update: it works again

I wanted to report an issue with zsh, but I can't.

Well, I got schooled with all kinds of bootloader and install issues I was having with Unity Linux 0.99-alpha2.

Boy did I get into trouble.  I took three pages of notes before I finally managed to scrap 0.99-alpha2 and get 0.99-alpha1 working again.

It's mostly a problem of my lack of understanding too.  I'll need to take another pass at the whole affair after reading some advice I got.  I know how I'll do things differently next time.

I hope to get into it later this week, although docs are a higher priority at this point since I've left things on auto-pilot for a while.. i.e. nobody was doing anything.

Somehow my postings always have a couple of issues that I find after posting them. I always find myself editing and re-editing and re-re-editing a post to improve it, even though I scan it carefully a couple of times before the initial post. I guess I'm still a wiki user at heart.
