Linux users

Linux users may launch the bootcode with any bootloader, both lilo and grub has been successfully tested. Just boot Womp kernel with init.gz as the ramdisk. For the root device, you may choose anything like root=/dev/shm or root=tmpfs or root=/dev/none it doesn't matter.

But you must specify the required boot parameters as described before :

Here's a typical lilo entry :

image = /boot/vmlinuz.womp
    label = womp   
    root = /dev/shm
    vga = 789
    initrd = /boot/init.gz
    append = " video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr go=y oss=y mouse=usb kb=fr lang=fr"
