Yes, it would be great if someone could give me feedback if booting works now on
most machines...
Right now the kernel should start up and stop at "Calibrating delay loop..." and
your led's are blinking "in row"...
Yesterday Phillipp checked code in, where you could see the timer-irq running, but
he checked it out again (I don't know why).

Maybe I should also say, that I currently worked a little at the
ITE/Framebuffer-code and until now I already can switch to graphics-mode and show
some nice white-yellow blocks on the screen....
It's too early to commit this code, but maybe in 2-3 weeks I will check it in.
