Hi Peter,

Yes I have turned on resierfs and ext2 too because /boot is and ext2
partition. From your description it looks like the AUTOBOOT options are good
but not sure why it reports of Unsupported image format. Let me first get
rid of GRUB. Do yout know if FILO works for all versions of GRUB boot
loaders or there are some specific boot loaders that it supports.
