While you are at it, couldn't you do the same for the MiNT kernel:
A small loader to put in auto folder, to run (and/or manually select)
the kernel dependent of current cpu, would be also useful when switching
between 030 and 060.

Also known as a "boot manager" ;-) I've been using Superboot and XBoot since 1990 or so, it's one of the most useful tools I have. A open source boot manager would be great, but it should be able to do more than selecting kernels. To be useful, it must have all the functionality of current boot managers, otherwise it would be just another thing to slow down booting.
