	Today I want to boot the L4/Fiasco/L4Linux in the CF card. I copy all the 
necessary files into the CF card and install the Grub-0.97-os.1 in this CF 
card. My test machine is a VIA development board and in this board the CF 
card is connected with this machine by the IDE plugin.
	My grub menu.lst is as following:

title           L4Linux26/Fiasco+dope
kernel          (hd0,0)/boot/L4Linux/bootstrap
modaddr         0x06000000

        module          (hd0,0)/boot/L4Linux/
vbeset 0x117 506070

	In the PC I have tested this configuration file and it is ok. Wh en I boot 
the VIA machine I choose the only one option to have this results.
	Booting L4Linux26/Fiasco+dope
	kernel  (hd0,0)/boot/L4Linux/bootstrap

	Error 13 Invalid or unsupported executable format
	pass anykey to continue...

	I tried it many times and I think it could recognize the file and file system 
(now it is ext3 and I  have ever tried ext2). But I don't know why is this 
	Best wishes.
	Thank you.
