I don't know of a maximum boot file size, but what I have found is an
easy way to create boot lists.
What I do is to use dynastar to edit a copy of the boot list so it
includes all of the modules I have (from OS-9 level1 ver 2.00.00 to
the current version of NitrOS9) and just comment out the inactive
ones. Then use os9gen to create a boot file on floppy to test with.
Once I have a stable bootfile, I un-comment additional modules untill
I get the result I'm looking for.
