Re: Easy words for boot sector ?

An important difference is that the code must be PC-relative. Eg, it should be able run from any memory location without relocation. That adds a little more to the challenge.

A normal program that is launched from TOS is relocated to the allocated memory address and demos/games that have their own bootloaders uses fixed memory addresses.
