After a bit of grief writing the images under Linux, I was able to boot a
DSDD NitrOS-9 image :-).
Next question: What environment is the NitrOS-9 source intended to be
built under? The makefile calls an executable called simply 'os9' all
over the place and references a cross-assembler called 'mamou' (?).
Perhaps it's there somewhere, but I could not locate anything specific
about the build tools.
I need to setup for this since the B&B disk drivers are apparently only
provided in source form.
