Well, I'm not having much success with this. Can't even get the Dev version to boot on my I-Opener, but that may be cos I did my installs on another machine then put the drive back in the I-Opener (don't have a CD-ROM drive on it)
I tried the safe booting option and it still hung at the same point.
On my other PC I tried out both Dev and Max(is it just me or is the default backdrop for that version a little bit disturbing?).
Its a while since I'd used BeOS, I forgotten what a cool OS it is, anyone who's not tried it, give it a whirl.
Anyhoo, neither version recognized the BeIA image which I'd dolly'ed to a hard drive.
(Also tried booting the I-Opener off that drive to see if it was just having an issue reading from the SanDisk, but it failed.)
I'll take a better look at how the Midori users handle their images and see if I can pick up any ideas there.
While scrolling through the image with a hex editor, I noticed a text message that mentioned gzip files.
If that ties in with the post about BeIA using a compressed file system, perhaps we can figure out where the boot loader stuff ends and the compressed stuff begins, chop out the compressed stuff, decompress it..etc..etc.
