It already knows about bootblocks, and that is an absolute requirement.

There is a lot more to it that putting files in certain places. The
bootblock needs to be patched up so that linuxbios knows how large the
lar file is, and potentially lots of other things.

Before we have a good concept on how to layout those files and who is
going to do that, we should not try to make things generic in a way that
we don't even plan to use.

Let's try to get this working and then enhance it to become funky.
