      Description

      I'd like to file an enhancement request for giving FreeLDR the option to read FREELDR.INI from floppy.

      If you load FreeLDR already from floppy using either bootsector(-file) or plain old chainloading, it reads FREELDR.INI from diskette. However if you boot FREELDR as Grub-style, it attempts to read this file from harddisk instead of from the bootdrive.

      This makes FreeLDR unusable as a floppy bootloader (loading other operating systems), as well as causing issues when a user selects to NOT install bootloader files to harddisk during phase 1 of SETUP.

      An alternative might be to build in a default path instead of requiring a configuration file. Failing that, GRUB-style FREELDR reading A:\FREELDR.INI would be great.
