> Linux as a starting point makes sense, but, wouldn't the long term plan include any bootable instance?  I would find it interesting to boot Windows, a KVM instance (fits Linux), Solaris x86, FreeBSD to name a few.

Anything that can be net-booted is in the realm of possibility of course.


You will see there that the method for booting the box is pxelinux,
hence the requirment for Linux.

If you really are interested in booting those, by all means, submit
those patches! :)
