OK, so our top priority becomes finding out why a GCC 3 made loader is going
tits up.

see my other posting some days ago. I don't think this hex stuff comes from loader, it more seems like boot2. I had this problem too on virtualpc/gcc3, but i don't have much time to look into that. but i'll be happy to run+try patches/debug stuff.

maybe we should start comparing assembly of boot2 done with gcc2 and gcc3 (mbr/boot0/boot1 are assembly source anyways) and then move to loader (ficl being [maybe] a problem here)
