How Dramatic!

this is very nice. one of these days maybe I'll have an additional AROS "boot" to my present multi-boot system.

To those of us who have suffered countless hours with the current installer, this is indeed dramatic news.  :-D

Yeah - this is huge news! Simply fantastic. Think of how many curious folks were swayed away by the difficulty of the install. I swore many times until I got it right. Heck - spent a Amiga group meeting (good 4 hours until I was able to install it - hehe after that I am a pro) :)

Great stuff.

So when is this going to make it into the nightly builds?

Bounty is due on Oct 2nd, so hopefully before then.  Neil said he would release a beta shortly for testing prior to him committing it to the SVN.

Actually, using AROS as the basis for an XOSL-type loader could give it a real application, as such.  Then, as it grows the ability to do more, it could take over some of the features vendors are cramming into BIOSes these days: instant-on CD and DVD playback, fetching software and BIOS updates, that sort of thing.
