H. Peter Anvin: It never rains but it pours... [kernel.org server down]

Well, after spending close to two hours bringing the old kernel.org server
back to life it died again after less than 10 minutes.  I hereby declare
the current zeus.kernel.org officially DEAD.  This suddenly meant that
getting the new server from Compaq fully provisioned suddenly (and very
ill-timedly) became a very high priority.

We're still waiting for a set of disk drives from Compaq, so it's not
going to happen today or tomorrow.  Until then, I'm afraid zeus.kernel.org
is going to be offline.  I'm going to try to redirect the rsync mirrors to
another site so at least the mirror sites can get updated.
