DragonFly MBR

Hi Everyone,

I wrote an MBR at one point - it's quite similar to FreeBSD's, except
instead of function keys it looks something like this:

> DragonFlyBSD

Uhm, paste that into vi or something that has a set font size and it
will make sense!  Anyway, you use the arrow keys and pick an OS.

Of course, I could change how any of this works (like the F1, F2, etc
if everyone prefers).  I thought maybe DragonFly could use its own MBR
instead of having a slightly modded one from FreeBSD.

Just say the word and I'll fire the source off your way - it's in
nasm.  I'll need to mod it to add support for other things though,
like multiple hard disks.  (FreeBSD has an "F5-Disk2" option).
