Heh. And how you will provide access to data for user? By address?
As I understand, an author is now writing an Operating System loader, and at the beginning
he wanted to do it as under OS/2 -- with filesystem drivers -- microFSD, miniFSD, and now
it seems that it's too complicated to do it straight way. And, for simplicity, it was decided to
do it a more simpler way -- accessing files by virtual memory addresses, not by a
filesystem, but by a concept of dataspaces (am I right?).
No user interaction is needed at this point, so it is not a question.
An addition: (Possibly, the files can be loaded from the network by tftp protocol,
by using an file system realization from other OS's personality, or by
some other way. It's possible, if using L4 microkernel)
