[Libguestfs] GSoC project to deal with bootloaders



Hi Matt,

I was discussing with Rich on #libguestfs about using the supermin appliance to 'package'
all the 3 outputs (kernel, initrd, root) the fedora appliance [1] into a raw/qcow2 image.

He then suggested, it's not easy,but do-able:
	- put the kernel and initrd onto the root disk, and then install a bootloader;
	- and then installing 'syslinux' on disk images

And said it'd be a nice GSoC project to deal with bootloaders.

If you have time to mentor, you might want to add some details under qemu/libvirt GSoC
umbrella - http://wiki.qemu.org/Google_Summer_of_Code_2013

Thank You.
