Yes, the ELF-HOWTO at

got me thru the by-hand conversions for my systems last year.

Also, we may want to ask Rocke to make a Linux a.out version of
the client (probably just a generic one, not 486, 586, and 686 flavors
since not too many people are non-ELF anymore)

I, for one, could dedicate a 100MHZ 586 if there was an a.out client.
If Rocke makes one I'll use it. But it is probably more important to
focus on other Unix platforms for now (tho' making a linux a.out should be
pretty straight forward)
