    pos - single sect os

    purely for the sake of vanity (ok, maybe a bit of humour as well <g>) here is a single sector operating system written for a small contest

    It's somewhat broken in that it refuses to load the file system past the second sector correctly, but hey

    You might need bochs to run this. I developed it with bochs, and haven't ever really tested it when written onto a real disk and booted up with a regular system... but that should work too.

    Enjoy the power of POS

    Oh yeah, you might also need some documentation besides the source code:

    c - clear the screen
    l - list files inside the fs
    d - dump file contents to screen
    e - execute file (only file executable in this is test)
    s - shutdown (hang)
