How hard did anybody work on a bootloader?

What version of firmware were they using?  The older firmware that shipped 
with most/many Sharks won't load from disks.  The version of Sep 1998 works 

I'm only interested in two cases - disk and ethernet.  Are there others?  How 
hard would it be to write a bootloader that didn't use the firmware?
