OSDev.Org 512 Byte Bootsector Competition

Over at the osdev.org forums, they’re hosting a brand new Bootsector Competition. Entries are limited to 512 bytes, and must be able to work with both FAT12 and FAT16 file systems. Each entry must be capable of locating a 32-bit ELF file in the filesystem, parsing the ELF headers, and executing the ELF binary. All entries are ISC licensed, and two prizes (in the form of Amazon.com gift certificates or donations to the PDPC/Freenode) are at stake, in addition to bragging rights. For the full contest rules, and how to enter, check out the forum post.
