  Initialize the 'kernel' environment variable from loader.4th
  instead of loader.conf.  loader.4th will set the kernel name to
  'kernel' for normal boots, 'kernel.BOOTP' for PXE boots.  This allows
  us to distinguish between BOOTP kernels and normal kernels and,
  in particular, this will allow both to be shipped on the CD.
I'm not sure if this have anything to do with forth, but is it possible 
to make the boot-loader recognize other operating systems (like Windows) 
instead of just displaying "???" ? This would be nice.
