anybody wrote a guide to setting this up?
If there is a guide it should be copied to the docs sections of either the OZ, Cacko or altboot's web site- even better all three!

I havent but would be interested in if someone has, altboot requires a "full" operating system correct? Does that include a separate kernel or is the premise to use the 2.6 or installed kernel from OZ? or technically that would be OE.

altboot uses kexec to start any kernel of your choice (even openBSD)
i think that this is perhaps more trouble than it is worth, but its been a long time scince i had a sharp rom or simmilar on my Z and i cant remeber what the flash layout is like
if it is posible then you would need the rootfs for OZ on an SD card or CF and have altboot installed. you would also need the cakco or sharp rom kernel stored somewhere (perhaps on /dev/hda1 in a /boot folder)
tell altboot to boot off of CF/SD to boot into OZ or tell it to boot off of a microdrive for cacko, i cant remeber the specifics of altboot as i have never dual booted but this is the basics required to do it
