Full description Multiboot is a specification document whicMultiboot is a specification document which attempts to unify bootloading across Operating System kernels. Its reference implementation, [http://directory.fsf.org/project/grub/ GNU GRUB], is the most widely deployed free software bootloader, as a consequence of this and its clean, legacy-free design, it is a widely adopted specification for new OS kernel projects. Among a number of editorial improvements, this version of Multiboot includes a rewrite of the `multiboot.h' header, which has been imported from [http://directory.fsf.org/project/grub/ GRUB] sources. This header is more complete than the previous version, and is licensed under permissive terms as a compromise to foster the development of Multiboot-compliant kernels. Previous versions of Multiboot were released with the same source tarball as GRUB Legacy. However, as GRUB Legacy is obsolete (we have moved development to GRUB 2 for several years), and no future release is planned, Multiboot is now provided in a separate source tarball.now provided in a separate source tarball.
