 OK, glad to know it does what I expect!

 Disabling AoE and iSCSI (by uncommenting the lines
 in config/general.h) will give you a substantially smaller ROM, if
you don't 
 need SAN booting support.
	That managed to create a much smaller ROM, but now is less than
65536 bytes. I'm just going to pad the end with NUL's - shouldn't be
any issues with that should there? Is there a way to do this from the
build or should I just do it from the shell?
