Looks like a Linux kernel? Sounds interesting...Can I do the same thing to my Zaurus? :)

Last time I talked to xbox-linux people, they told me there are two ways
to boot linux on the xbox: one that slurps in a linux kernel and starts
that (and probably doesn't know much else), and a general MBR-like booting
that can boot everything. Seems the way they're going is #1 though.

My inquiries on some NetBSD list on how to make a NetBSD kernel look like
a Linux kernel (it's all ELF after all, right?) was not answered. ;(

I don't have an Xbox or real interest in the project, but it'd sure be
nice to have NetBSD on that platform.
