Could you be more specific about elf.  I was using option BOOT_IDE which
uses ide_fill_inbuf.c etc.  Seems to work for a raw partition, but I have
not tried the combination with the Linux ext2fs in the other partition
(right now using a ramdisk loaded from a floppy as the rootfs).  Are you
talking about ELF_BOOT?
