BootLPT/86 (Announce)

Hi,
one of my friend in Slovakia was inspired by my ROMOS project and he wrote a BootLPT/86 ROM loader for his vintage diskless mini PC-XT. It allows to load bootdisk image via LPT port from another computer that behaves like server. His loader is small enough to fit 8k ROM and runs on 8086. He reused my INT13h handler to serve DOS virtual disk image.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
