The procedure doesn't work properly yet and I've noted that.

For testing, a qemu installed system is in /dev/sda5 and a diskette 
installed system is in /dev/sda6.  sda6 boots as it should and sda5 
comes to OBE and stops.  According to 
"... the second block of the OBL boot loader did not load correctly. "

"dhex /dev/sda5 /dev/sda6" shows that the first 40 bytes  
from sda{5,6} match.  Then, there are few matches until 
offset 800.  From 800 onward, the two devices match again, 
except for three specific differences.

Why do Oberon0 under QEMU and Oberon0 from a diskette 
install two different boot loaders?  Have I overlooked an 
option for QEMU?

Thanks for any ideas,             ... Peter E.
