Earlier when I came here I had only a minimal set of utilities and a WinXP comp.. Now i'm here and serious, with kubuntu (and Internet!!!!) and willing to learn all of that dd, mov, eax, and bochs stuff. Here is my delemia: I have a C++ Program, have no idea how to make a simple bootloader for it.
From other questions it boiled down to these:
Initialize the FAT filesystem
Start the program.
I need to know what dd and asm commands to use in terminal too as I have had a bad history with bochs and dd (all on windows).
I also lost that verbatim bootloader as I got a new computer because my old hard drive died...
I have the standard GNU Bitutils, if I need to ill figure out how to instll NASM/MASM oh whatever it is.
If there is a way to take some of GCC (C/C++ Compiler not Collection) asm output and use it with this that would be nice.
Thanks In Advance For Your Help.
