Btw, I've had a look at copy/v86 [0] which looks interesting. There's a
bootable arch system in the demos.

I haven't yet figured out how to boot an installed system as I haven't
understood the way the disks/FS are handled, but the installer works
(slowly).

See [1] for my report / request for more details.

Hope this helps,
