This is an hypothesis: I don't test anythings. Anycase, with this big
kernel, floppy must be a little restructured. Creation of a EXTENSION
addon is now required (addon #2), moving modules and lynx on them:

        BOOT+ROOT+USR mounted in /startup, / and /usr
        EXT mounted /usr/local
        X11 mounted in /usr/X11R6
        GCC mounted in /gcc

The PATH variable should be arranged giving high priority to addons:

                /usr/local/bin, /usr/X11R6/bin, /usr/bin, /bin

In this way, issuing "mc" with only first floppy loaded will start "pion";
issuing "mc" with EXT floppy loaded, will start ... the true MC!
Floppy #1 still remains the hacking floppy, with rustic and emergency tools.

What you think?

Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
