Since I'm late with everything, I have released patches with a new
version of stage1.S, modified versions of start.S, bios.c etc... to
support El Torito and odd floppies formats. But this new version,
against 0.92 is UNTESTED. 

This new version of stage1 relocates itself, is PIC, so it can behave
gently even if it is not loaded at 0:0x7C00 AND it can load another
stage1 (for example another GRUB stage1 on another disk, or a MS MBR

I have changed too the directory tries for _stage1_.

The patches are here, but I need to test... and document some changes.
But stage1.S is deeply commented. Note that you will need to use
automake and autoconf to regenerate the Makefile.in:
