What is the benefit of doing it this way?  How does it affect the
keyboard selection later?

BTW, I've added a section on setting boot parameters, needed to be
populated though still.  Here's the parameters which will be

  [other stuff to be found in f5.txt]
  'memory=' [needed on some compaqs -- x86 only]

I guess most of this stuff as found in f5.txt is x86 only, more or
