This works on several of my hosts.  I do not get an innitial
kernel selection screen, but if you hit F3 (and read) you can
select one of the several flavors of boot-disks..


If this works for others, I am in favor of removing the MULTIBOOT
option from boot-i386, as it only seemed to work on some BIOS's.
This also gets to where we should be, at least the option of a
2.4.x kernel on CD#1 !   Good work.

There's a button called `brightness', but it doesn't work.
