  Booting NewOS  
  Booting on an x86 is relatively easy. Take a built binary, should be called 'final.i386' or take the .flp file from the web site and simply copy it onto the raw floppy. For info on how to do this, read on.

To put the image file directly onto a floppy, you need to use either 'dd' if running a *nix or 'rawrite' if under windows.

Linux/FreeBSD example: dd if=final.i386 of=/dev/fd0 bs=18k

Rawrite can be found all over the internet and is pretty self-explanatory.
