That's hardcoded bootsector(-geometry) you're referring to, sorry.
Basicly you have a bootsector pointing to MetaKern, and then MetaBoot is 
attached/appended to MetaKERN.SYS and reuses metakern's bootsector. That 
way you could use the metakern.sys file that's located on harddisk even 
on a floppy without having to regenerate bootsectors.

Each metaboot instance pointing to a different FreeDOS kernel file 
(KERNEL38.SYS , KERNEL40.SYS etc) would be convenient :)

"metaboot.bot - boot sector that re-uses the boot sector in RAM, set up
                for the case where MetaKern is called metakern.sys
                (So you must use a NEW STYLE MetaKern installation!)"


Likely just a matter of changing kernel name inside source code and 
recompiling with NASM. Some config directive (-D or so was it?) would be 
more convenient :)
