Well in some way or another i got a copy with the book to Sweden.

Ran it from 1999 to 2002 or so (got a SGI challenge S as NetBSD machine
and a pc as a linux machine at that time in 2002 or so.)

Host was a 6100 with the Apple tilt display, i still have the hw, book
and MkLinux cd but the psu in the 6100 became bad....
