Sure - no header, no symbols. What I really mean is, if there
is no header, will DDB crash and burn? Or will it just be a little
"dumber" than usual ( Dumb DeBugger :-)

OK. So if the Booter's LOAD_KERNEL has LOAD_HDR,
then both a.out and ELF kernels will have full DDB support,
otherwise just a.out ones will work ?
