I'm glad to hear that quik can be used to boot CDs.  Sometime if
you have the time, I'd like to hear how that's done.

In either case, under my proposal, once the user has gone to the
trouble of setting up MacOS and BootX for the install process,
they might as well continue to use that setup for booting their
production system.  Unless you (or someone) can come up with a
foolproof way of packaging quik in a bootloader installer.

I'll do whatever I can to help with testing.  But if it drags out,
there *is* always the "no boot loader" option as a last resort.
