And it does not work on SCSI drives either - I tried it on my half
IDE / half SCSI box with a floppy and a SCSI disk -- 'stage1_lba'
just barfed "Error LBA" or something and the game was over.
However - colors are extremely cute and much appreciated - I tried

Thanks a lot. :-)
BTW - am I right if I suspect that floppy drives are something the
stage2 emulator does not yet understand? (You see - people are quite
lazy and don't want to leave their OS - not even for something as
important as a bootloader installation to an ext2 formatted floppy
