I replaced the image on the box with the Soekris-specific one late last
night. Interestingly, it seemed to upgrade fine via the web "firmware
upgrade" interface once I'd renamed the image to generic-pc-<ver>.img.

Differences I could find were a more responsive WebGUI (not quite sure why),
and the "net" light on the front is steady to indicate interfaces up, rather
than with the generic-pc image where the "net" light flickers with traffic.

I'm sure there are others that I didn't notice...
