Use text, mmkay?

And no, right now there is no way to boot off mmc (or network, or..) but 
something could probably be hacked up. (See the multiboot-menu packages that 
were developed for the ipaq - the basic idea is that all versions share a 
kernel, but the initrd can 'chain' to other initrds and roots.)
