We should maintain a page in the Wiki for it. It needs quite a bit
brush up.

The information on how to enable/disable the A/B/C/D/E/F segment memory
needs to go to LinuxBIOS, otherwise we have to change ADLO for each
mainboard. I suggest packing something into the LB table is a good place
for this.. Any takers? ;-)

It is using bochs bios (a too old version maybe) so theoretically it
should be able to boot everything that bochs/qemu can boot as well. 

Windows 2000 was proven to work. Dont know about others...
