[Fwd: [FWD: A small TCP/IP/ICMP stack]]

I hope I'm not intruding, but this was just posted to the seul-edu
mailing list and I thought you might find it useful.  ELKS is a project
to develop a small version of the Linux kernel for use (primarily) on
embedded processors.  I think the acronym stands for Embeddable Linux
Kernel System, or something close to that.

Doug Loss                 A life spent making mistakes is not only
Data Network Coordinator  more honorable, but more useful than a
Bloomsburg University     life spent doing nothing.
