Agreed.  One of the things I'd like to see is a MASH or something like
that for my machine.  It would make the bootstrapping procedure
easier.  Also, I'd like to have some way to partition and newfs disk
areas from the ARC bios (even if it only works from "MOST" of the
implementations).  I now have a disk with 32M for kernels (DOS
partition) and 280M for hacking (soon to be ext2fs).  Ralf, will that
be enough?  Also, are disk roots supported yet.  setup.c leads me to
believe not.
