Release Notes: This is now distributed on 1.44 floppy to allow editing on Win2000/NT boxes. initrd.gz is encrypted to prevent tampering. Encryption keys are now automatically removed from the filesystem, and the floppy module was removed to prevent access of the keys. The initialization scripts were updated. NE2000 and 3Com network drivers are now included as a default. This is the last Version Prior to the 2.4 kernel series.
Release Notes: The system now uses automatic scripts to set up Virtual Tunnels between two or more LinuxMagic VPNs using floppy disks. It supports most network cards and the 2.2.14 kernel. It can fit on a 1.44 floppy, but plans are in place for using an IKE instead of Manual keys, so the distribution is still in 1743K format. It uses a DOS filesystem for easy configuration. It now uses the FreeSWAN IPSEC system.
