If you're using Flash ROM instead of real disk, then providing INT 13h
services is fairly easy.
Anyway I don't think the kernel actually uses it unless you're
booting off a floppy. The _loader_ will use it, but not the kernel AFAIK.
Perhaps I'm wrong, and it tries to get geometry info from it though. Anyone?
