I just turned on the M810 motherboard I got from cwlinux.com which came
delivered with an DoC with linuxbios, linux, and a root file system.
with 512 MB in two slots, it is about 5 seconds from turnon to a screen,
and about 10 seconds to a login prompt. Very impressive.
Andrew, from here I assume that if I had an IDE drive I would mount it and
This is really neat!

I need the following clarification about the LinuxBios boot up
1. Can LinuxBios boot from CDROM?
2. Can LinuxBios boot from a SCSI Disk?
3. Does anybody have a FAQ or collected information about how the
bootup sequence works?

And more testing since these messages are the only ones I've seen so far.

I could not find an email address or other method of contacting you so I am attemting to do so through this mailing list.
My name is Eric and I own www.bioscentral.com. I noticed you had some mailing list issues and would like to know if you would like to have some forums made up for your use. As it is, I have forums for users to post questions to for some help with their BIOS issues. Although the site tailored to present BIOS's, i.e., AMI, Phoenix, Award, etc.. I can easily add forums for your use. Whatever you would want.
If your interested in it, just let me know. Bios Central is a free site. The advertising on the pages is free as well. I make no money from any aspect of the site. I'm not sure if this would be a problem, but the entire site is free for anyone to use. I ask for no money or any other type of compensation. I'm just trying to lend a hand in your development of the LinuxBIOS.
Bios Central is going on three years now. The original forums were pulled and these were installed in place of them. The original server that the site was located on did an upgrade that effectively torched the forums. Lost over 5000 messages as a result. It's current home in with a very reliable company that has excellent tech support. Great bunch of people. Anyway, it's been rock stable since moving last March. Not one issue.
Feel free to contact me at postcode(a)*NOSPAM*bioscentral.com is you have any questions. I'm not sure if I'll recieve a reply through this mailing list as this is my first mailing list I've subscribed to.
As I see, there is a posibility to use LinuxBIOS with the Gigabit GA-6BXC
series mainboard. I have GA-6BXE so here's my question: how about
installing LinuxBIOS on this mainboard. Could I use the files from GA-6BXC
to my model ? If not, when (if its possible) is going to be suport for
this. I think, that it's no much difference, between this models (am I

mkelfImage-1.15 is out.
* 1.15 23 August 2002
- Rewrote the perl ip checksum code to be reasonably fast
- Fixes to the initial parameter passing in head.S thanks to Jake Page <jake(a)CS.Stanford.EDU>
- Initial cross compiling support thanks to Jake Page <jake(a)CS.Stanford.EDU>
- Official specfile thanks to Andrew Ip <aip(a)cwlinux.com>
- Autoconf support Josh Aune <lunke(a)linuxnetworx.com>
rpms can be built with:
rpm -ta mkelfImage-1.15.tar.gz
The big changes are the ability to build as an RPM, and mkelfImage is now
reasonably fast again.
