Try gobsd, which should be able to load a kernel right from your / from AmigaOS
without BFFS installed. Doesn't work for me, though. :(

Heh, would be cool, though i'm not the right person to coordinate this. Esp.,
the install-doc itself contains a part which is the same for all architectures,
and an architecture specific part. You should check which one to update so the
maximum number of persons can profit from it. (I think the mt-stuff fits into
the arch-indep. section, whereas the probs with the Retina and BFFS etc. go in
the arch-specific section).
