Floppy program

So I was experimenting with some assembly programming and I came across a tutorial which taught me some things about creating a program that is runnable without windows being loaded yet. I found it very funny because you ain't got functions such as standard procedures from the windows API. So what I did, is creating a virtual floppy file, write the boot program raw onto the floppy and use QEmu to test it out. And here is what I've got so far.

  • Printing text.
  • Clearing screen
  • Changing fore and backcolour
  • Wait for user to press a key.
Yes I know it's not very much, but you see, I'm learning assembly so =D
