I've added the required el-torito loader to the tarball, so the
runit.sh script no longer depends on the user having Grub installed.

It would be simpler if floppy-boot mode would work: there would be no
need to create an ISO image, which requires something like grub to
load the application. But, since I do have something that works, I
don't have a lot of motivation to figure out what's wrong with the
floppy startup mode. :)
