Hi,
new "delo" release - It seems that i might call it "everyday use" release.

New features:

- reads /etc/delo.conf for parameters and kernel image name
- command line arguments for the bootsector installer

There is a known bug i cant seem to find - Look into the readme.

I only tried on /260 so far but i guess itl work on any REX machine.
There is currentl no "NON-REX" support but someday ....

The loading is currently SLOW like hell - I guess
its because of the PROM beeing very slow. There are possibilities
to speed up - But - Who wants to boot his Decstation that often ?
