What exactly do you plan on doing there, anyway? I have a few comments, nothing serious, though: * It's BFS in the Haiku world, it's only called BeFS in Linux as they already had an old unused file system called BFS a.k.a. Boot File System. * Locating and starting haiku_loader is not the main but the sole purpose of the stage 1 boot loader. With other firmwares such as U- Boot, the haiku_loader is executed directly, os there is no stage 1 boot loader anymore. * The purpose of the stage 2 boot loader is to load the kernel, and all modules needed for booting. It also serves as a platform abstraction layer that tries to keep the kernel clean from things like BIOS programming for the most part. Also see: http://www.haiku-os.org/documents/user/how_to_get_haiku_booted I'm also pretty sure that I wrote a newsletter article about that in the OpenBeOS days, but I can't find it anymore. Bye, Axel.
