I'm not sure if you rellay can use the ROM routines for the file-system...

It is quite some years since I looked inside the ROM routines, but as I
remember, it is just a very big loop which handles the serial bus and the
commands (the job loop is another thing). While you definitely can put in a
command which should be executed and then jump inside the big loop, you will
never get control back. That's the reason why I would call the ROMs a
firmware and not an OS.

Anyone have an opinion on this?
