I'm still surprised it works myself, partly because it sounds like it
really shouldn't be possible, given what everyone else is saying.

I'm going to have a butchers on Virtual PC 2004, since I've got a day
off tomorrow. I'll compile a fresh SVN copy of the BootCD and LiveCD,
and see what I can get working with that.

QEMU 0.7.0 for Windows, with 32MB using r17829, first stage completes
again, second stage complains it's out of Swap Space....

Bochs 2.1.1 with 32MB can't create the registry hives, and fails
around ~60% on 1st stage install.

Alex, I'm curious to see how you've got ROS booting with such low
memory. Needless to say, I'm very much interested to see the same
