Modified files: sys/arch/i386/stand/biosboot: biosboot.S biosboot.8 sys/arch/i386/stand/installboot: installboot.c installboot.8 distrib/i386/common: Makefile.inc Log message: Major overhaul of biosboot and installboot, using EDD (LBA) reads if the BIOS supports it. File location data now geometry-independent (biosboot groks part of the inode), so installboot loses -h and -s. Many thanks to all those brave enough to try the snapshots. Thanks for the test reports, everyone. ok deraadt@Your hardware (BIOS) requirements are the dictating factor, so older BIOS versions may be problematic. But, this is prety cool. Well done, Tom. The 3.5 release is really shaping up.
