0x00008000. Then, I'm assuming virtual memory tables are setup to
place the code in the 0xc0xxxxxx memory range. I think the
0xc0xxxxxx range is a 1-to-1 with the physical (0xc0xx8000 virt is
0x00008000 phys, etc).
I'm not 100% sure of this, though - I'm going based on my memory
(don't have the code sitting in front of me).
