Ahh found the problem.  I'm sorry, I've confused you.  The problem is *not*
in the a20 handling code as I first said.

The thing is that this laptop's bios seems to be quite broken. It does not
pass the right boot drive in %dl at boot time; I've forced that register to
be 0 at the very beginning of the stage1.S file and solved the problem (of
course, this is not the right solution).
