I'm aware that Coreboot is typically run in firmware.  I was just
referring to it in general as a linux OS designed just to boot other
operating systems.  Perhaps I could have said a linux-based secondary
bootloader (capable of running EFI programs or GRUB or linux or
whatever).  However, these are all things that coreboot does, and I'm
sure you could get coreboot to run from disk just as you can get it to
run from flash.
