SubjectRe: Boot messages (Was: Re: Ideas for v2.1)

I think the correct way to do this would be to just load the whole mess out
of a file, and then write it to video memory. A little fiddling with
registers might be necessary, but LILO or whatever program should not have
to interpret any graphics formats. There should be a user-land program that
creates the image, paints it to the video, and dumps the video to a file.
The loader would only have to know where it is and what to do to get the
video into whatever mode.

(but I wouldn't run it myself.)
