Please do. I know very little about this subject and I think that is
true for many people. I am Dutch and for Dutch (and English) ASCII
(or anything ASCII like) is enough.
So I don't know much about it, when it is used, etc. But don't take
me wrong, I find this very important.

Ok. You already implemented a very simple menu. But when I choose an
option, nothing happens. It is easy to change it so it actually boots
the option you have chosen.
I know you want to work more on this, but I think it is important to
have something that works in an early stage. For the Pc and apple
versions we have almost everything that is required.

I like it. Currently on my development box I have a boot item called
"Network menu" (yeah, stupid name). When I choose that it loads the
menu.lst from my tftp server. In that menu.lst some GNU Mach, L4 and
toy kernels are listed.

I think Thomas sent in a patch for this, right? Could you please
review it? You have more knowledge about module loading.

This is a very good idea. Can you set up a wiki?
