BootMemTester is an AmigaOne BootCD adaption of MemTester. 
Using UBoot reference code so it runs as a bootblock off a CD.

In case memory problems show up it can be auto booted directly from
UBoot and run tests. Press Cursor Down to skip a test and Escape to skip all 
remmaining tesrs and return to the UBoot prompt.

Due to UBoot limitations it appears that only 16MB of memory can be allocated
from. To test the full RAM range it would need to take full control of the MMU
so a wider range of RAM could be tested. This may be possible in a later

For full RAM testing running MemTester in an OS4 boot shell or from Linux is
still the best way and also allows modification of caches. But for a quick test
if a system is playing up a BootMemTester CD could be handy to have around.

Two files are included, BootMemTester.iso and BootMemTester.slb. Use the ISO
image to burn onto a CD/RW. 

The SLB image is included for those who wish to boot off USB which is possible.
Simply grab a USB drive already formatted in Amiga format and install the SLB
file as the SLB uisng Media Toolbox. Note that if you install it to a USB drive
this way it will overwrite the boot block and it won't be usable in a PC. Thus
why it should already be in Amiga format. I haven't tested this on a Sam so
feedback would be welcome. :-)
