It is possible, but if we can go to it in another way, that is better yet.
Also, i don't really know what can be removed from the kernels, since most
stuff they don't need is modular anyway.

Notice that the main problem still is that i couldn't get 2.6 miboot to work
except two mysterious times in oldenbourg.
