It seems I lied about this one - that was right in the previous version, 
but I removed a 'push cs; pop ds' pair with some debugging cruft and didn't 
remember that fact when I later noticed that they ought to be there for 
other reasons. The perils of asm hacking at 2am :)

So I'm not _quite_ as stupid as I thought. Close, though. It _was_ 
copying the handler to the right place, but just pointing the IRQ vector at 
the old location.

Oh well, it ought to work now. Now we just need to finish hacking Grub so 
it can boot a kernel off the NFTL. So far, it finds the hardware and scans 
if for an NFTL Media Header. The rest should be simple.
