Make the system boot first
I personally tried many minor systems. I think Haiku is the most promising. I have plenty skill and time to contribute to this project. But, I never had be able to boot the haiku system from my real hardware though I could run it in the vmware. I don't like run a system in vmware before I could write code for it. I think many guys have the same opinion. My computer can boot by windows, linux and some other systems. Why couldn't I boot from Haiku? I couldn't even catch the error message to send a report. It is really frustrating since I have kept my eyes on this project at the very beginning of the project. Is it possible some smart guy just copies the boot loader from linux? I couldn't wait anymore to try this system in a real hardware.
