It's a very simple boot menu. It has to fit inside the MBR, so it can't know about all partition types. If you want, you can cd to /sys/boot/i386/boot0/, edit the tables in boot0.s, run "make obj && make depend && make && make install" then run "boot0cfg -B da0" to reinstall the new bootblock into the disk. If you get an "attempt to .org backwards" message while compiling, that means you made the bootblock larger than 512 bytes, and you'll have to remove some of the other entries in the table. Note that it just goes by partition type, so it can't tell the difference between a w2k and a wxp partition, or different linux partitions. I suggest using grub from ports if you want a nice customizeable menu. > It is going to take me a good week to get everything configured > and running, but it seems that this will happen, it will just take > time. > > You really need to get teTeX in your Ports distribution!!!
