Added documentation on paths to source code and packages we provide under

/share.  I made it a FAQ question, if you can't tell from the commit!

Are there Linux and/or FreeBSD sources and packages available locally?
</b></font>
<p>
Yes. We provide sources and packages for a few versions of
FreeBSD and RedHat Linux. The place to look for available
software is under <b>/share</b> on either <b>users.emulab.net</b>
or your experimental nodes. This path is readonly (and NFS
mounted on the nodes), so you'll need to make a copy of the
contents found there if you need to do more than reference them
for information or installation.

<ul>
<li><b>FreeBSD Paths:</b>
The FreeBSD kernel, and userland sources are available under
<b>/share/freebsd</b>. Look there to see if the version you are
seeking is available. You can also find Emulab additions and
modifications to FreeBSD here. Emulab kernel configurations are
called TESTBED and located in <b>sys/i386/conf</b> relative to the
FreeBSD source trees. The README file in this directory has more
information on the contents.
</li>
<br>
<li><b>Linux Paths:</b>
Linux kernel sources and RPMs for various versions of Redhat can
be found under <b>/share/redhat</b>. Look there to see if the
version you are seeking is available. You can also find Emulab
additions and modifications to Linux here. Emulab kernel
configurations are called <b>config-emulab</b> and exist in the
root of the kernel source trees. The README file in this
directory has more information on the contents.
</li>
<br>
<li><b>Other Software:</b>
We provide a few other generally useful software packages and
sources under <b>/share</b> as well. Have a look around.
</li>
<br>
<li><b>Something Missing?</b>
If you think something should be added to <b>/share</b>, feel
free to send your suggestion(s) to us via
<a href="emailus.php3">email</a>. Note that we may retire some
offerings if we determine them to be of little value.
