	Fiasco is the microkernel but L4Linux is not. L4Linux is the variation of 
Linux kernel running on top of Fiasco and it is loaded as the module of 
Fiasco when running. They made the L4Linux in order to have a good 
portability of Linux application into the L4/Fiasco.

	First you must compile the Fiasco and L4Linux of course you need a modified 
grub version to boot the Fiasco successfully.  I think you should download 
all the souce code of L4 and L4Linux and try to compile. :)
