Hello

I just need to boot the kenel, this machine is rented, i can't change
any hardware configuration, i can just try to get plan9 running there
with the help of qemu. . .

I installed a fossil terminal, now i need to instruct 9load to read
the kernel from /dev/sdB0, and if the kernel loads, i need to instruct
it to use 9grid.es as the fs and auth.

I will post the results of these tests if they are possitive.

thanks!
