I've promised to show you some screenshot

That's how it looks like. The menu drawing and handling in bootstrap is for real. The menu.lst file is made for testing purposes, just to see whether it will be interpreted properly.

The default boot option is marked red and will be booted in 2 seconds (as seen on the screen) unless some other option gets selected. Of course one may change both the default option and the timeout.

The menu.lst config file which was parsed by bootstrap was like this:

# menu.lst config file for PPC AROS. Test version ;)

timeout 20
default 0

title AROS PowerPC test 1
   kernel boot/aros-ppc1 arg1 argument_2 "some arg 3" another_one
   module Libs/arosc.library
   module boot/modules.pkg
   module boot/test1.module

title AROS PPC test 2
   kernel boot/aros-ppc2
   module boot/modules.pkg
   module boot/test2.module

title AROS PPC third option
   kernel boot/blah

i might add man this doesnt want to see the hardrive partions i tested the 386 version on an older machince it worked. to a certain poitn it didnt see the fat32 partions nor the linux version and put an drive icon .All linux distros do this. Plus an install icon on the desktop would help.
then give options to either resize a partion and or format and install certain partions which the distros do.
