I'm trying to punt around that by having memdisk part of etherboot, so the 
transferred image doesn't have to have stuff pre-pended to it, or be altered 
at all. I can prove that the mbr part of the image in high mem is identical 
to what a pcbios_disk_read(0,0,0,1) puts in 0x7c00, but it's the gluing 
business I'm struggling with at the moment.
