You have the patches, and the changes to the booter are minimal to support
your box. Look into the patches (DON'T USE THEM WITH THE OLD BOOTER!), and
set the KA660 in the consio.c and so. The old booter is a bit simpler to
modify for this. But "my" booter also supports MSCP, i continue booting the
system from KFQSA after MOPping the booter.
