In my first post here (or how you call it) I have given the links to the
kernel I'm trying to compile, from Bran's kernel development tutorial.
It's code dating back to 2005 and he appears to have been using Windows to
compile it. I have "converted" his DOS batch file to a Makefile, without
changing anything in the source or how the tools were invoked. He was
using Win32/DOS versions of GCC, NASM and LD.
