Our bootloader supports getting args from multiboot info though it doesn't use them yet. And I started to write the code to support the IMAGE.BE scheme as well but didn't finish, I'll have a look at supporting this some day. (Our kernel currently requires using our own bootloader though our loader but it can easily be chained from grub.) cf. http://dev.haiku-os.org/browser/haiku/trunk/src/system/boot/loader If I had time I'd propose helping with testing on the Mac as well but I'm too busy :p François. -- BeOS did it 15 years ago!
