Uze stated that the booloader is actually in Alpha stage, which means it's not anywhere near stable.
There is support only for fat16 and no fragmantation.
Maybe try to check the SVN to see if there is a newer version... or hack it yourself :) But as far as I know, it's in assembler so, it's not easy...
