Are you saying that I CAN boot from a diskette,
which I can incrementally modify to capture my approach
towards the hardware parameters *AND* continue the 
boot from the CD ?!

If so, I'd search for the docos of how to do that.

I guess the args, like the init-string which are good for 
N-O can't just be copied?

PS. IMO, that the mail-list is dead indicated to me that A2
is not used like N-O *WAS*.

These days, I typically run 3 leo [linux eth oberon] on my
box, to get superior multi-frame-editing of projects.
How else can you:
* d/l an *.html,
* pop pdf images into it,
* koki-pen-colour-mark text stretches while you're trying
      to extract understanding of the text.
* store & open the file immediately with a single clux ?
