Thanks heaps for this link, it was exactly the read I needed.
Presumably the code required to address a drive directly in LBA is too
large to fit in the bootblock. What about the extended int13h functions?
Does the NetBSD bootblock support those yet? That would surely enable the
kernel to be booted from beyond the 504Mb limit.
