Unfortunately, you can't do that yet. NewOS does not yet have a disk-
based file system implemented (which is why we need BFS). You can boot 
it from floppy and, from there, it loads the kernel -- including a 
virtual file system. But you can read/write anything from/to a disk 

Once we do have a disk file system and can set up an OpenBeOS partition 
--- then things really start getting fun!
