Ok, despite what I said yesterday I decided to release a 2.08-pre10.
The only difference over 2.08-pre9 is that I have added a small program
in the "samples" directory called chain.c32. This allows chainbooting
local floppies and hard disks:
chain fd0 ; Chainboot the first floppy drive
chain hd0 ; Chainboot the first hard drive
chain hd1 3 ; Chainboot partition 3 on the second hard drive
Right now only primary partitions (1-4) and the MBR are supported;
however, it should be fairly easy to extend to support logical
partitions... I just haven't gotten around to doing it. Someone else
might want to pick that one up.
Similar stuff with partition hiding and so forth.
