I am not familiar how FILO loads and starts an image, but one thing
comes to my mind: the ELF is a minimalistic one, with lar in mind, it
has only program headers and no section headers. Maybe this is a problem
for FILO.

Do the old ADLO images loaded for you?

The README and every description file comes from the original source. 

; III) tell BOCHS' BIOS we want to boot from hdd.
; 0x00 - floppy
; 0x02 - hdd
; In future there will be 'fd failover'option in bochs.

;CMOS_OUT(#0x3d, #0x02)

Uncomment this field in loader.s to boot from HDD.

Logic for boot device priority must be implemented in Bochs BIOS,
currently it will try the device it is told to and stop if that is not
