my understanding of lilo is that if you place it on the boot sector, you can load the boot sector to a point in memory (I cannot recall exactly where right now, you can email me farther if you need to) and simply jmp to it. Actually all boot sectors work the same way...
Basicly you are right. But lilo makes extensive use of *real* BIOS functions like int13, int10, int16, and some strange int15-shift-this-memory-to-ems function that I forgot the functioncode of.
I´d rather do this in C and burn a barebone Kernel onto my Disk ... But I´m not sure if I kill my own running environment by copying a Kernel to mem at 0x10000. Furthermore I have no idea if the segment-deskriptor-setup is suitable for an immediate start of a kernel image ...
I´ll try this tomorrow and keep you up to date if I succeed on this ...
