Nice to see such fast results. I'll try to test the changes this week.
If it all works fine. I'll add them to the RPCEmu repository.

I've got the source of the ArcEmHostFS module and could successfuly
compile it with a cross compiler. I will modify the boot code so it
will be possible to configure from which drive you can boot.

Can you fix it or does the ArcEmHostFS module need to do some things
for you? Anyway does the emulator still crash when the patch is
applied if an non-existence disc is referenced?

Same question again. Need the HostFS module be modified for that?
