I am trying to use our classic kernel loader " `bootstrap` ".

I shall test it...

OK, i finish my tests and if i can't find solutions i will.

As rightly written by Geert Uytterhoeven is possible to join in ram the kernel
as he also writes there maybe problems with Amigas with a small RAM amount.

Right! , another thing i must put in the test's list.

With ppp ? Nice...
But i was not able to find a ppp configuration mask in the
network section of dbootstrap program...
is it a new feature?
