More to the point, how will the bios be able to tell the kernel all the important options it needs to know?
Your bios will be like LILO (which had to be re-installed every time you made a change to the kernel). Or like CP/M (which had to do a "sysregen" every time the hardware changed).
shouldn't the machine just be able to load your OS kernel directly?
