That's not multiboot (
that's bootmanager (
and you need -DBOOTMANAGER for it).

Already done that multiple times. Except for the timeout, I could do
it in <10 minutes under DEBUG.COM - why reinvent the wheel? MirOS
is free software (as in OSI).

@Paul: no need to tell me, I know pine is not free. But if it says
       your mailer is broken, it probably is. Stop flamewarring, I've
       got worse things to do (dayjob).
