:Matt, what about the SMP kernels?
:Oh, and may I request ALTQ be compiled into it/them by default?

    I don't think we're going to be able to include SMP kernels on the
    release ISO for this release, when it was brought up last time 
    a number of issues were pointed out that would require us to have
    at least two and maybe even four different kernel binaries (and related 
    module directories) to cover all the bases.

    Include ALTQ in generic?  Hmm. I would personally rather not, unless
    a really good case is made for including it.  We *are* including 
    kernel sources on the ISO now, so perhaps a better solution would
    be to create a section on how to set up a kernel build infrastructure
    given just a freshly installed ISO.
