FILO is used to boot a kernel from a known partition on local
storage. FILO with the GRUB-like interface accepts the same commands
as GRUB, except that disk devices are named hda1 and so on. Note
never sda. Note this device naming is different than in Linux. Disk
devices are assigned names in PCI bus order.

We really do need a command in FILO to print a list of devices. :)

MBR is a BIOS thingy so for that you need SeaBIOS.
