Please read the chapter "Targeting real hardware via the run tool" of
the 13.05 release notes [0]. In a nutshell - you may setup your network
infrastructure (dhcp, tftp server) and your test machine to support
booting via network. Our run tool takes care to generate and put all
files in place so that they can be loaded by your test box without
manual intervention. If you once successfully managed to setup this it
is really really handy during for developing.

That means whatever scenario - described as a run script - you invoke on
your developer machine gets loaded and started on your test machine.
This even works cross platform (ARM, x86) and cross kernel (base-hw,
NOVA, Fiasco.OC, OKL4, Fiasco/L4, Pistachio) if you crafted your run
script carefully.
