For example, if I start up qemu and immediately type "debug do-boot", I'm told "could not locate word for debugging ok",
Right. do-boot is defined by the primary bootblocks, the code it reads
from blocks 1-15. If you're still booting from the Nevada CD, use boot
cdrom -H , which will cause it to halt before it executes do-boot.
You'll have to clean up -H from the arguments so you can get past the
test for halt?.
ok boot cdrom -H
ok debug do-boot
(step through until you see the test for halt?, then enter forth and set
halt? to false).
