We are interested in using LinuxBIOS on our medical system, running the Digital Logic P5
PC-104 SBC. After reading these posts, and scanning the FAQ, I am confused about boot
Will LinuxBIOS work on a stand-alone system with a EIDE disk?
If floppy boot won't be supported, can it boot from cdrom?
Thanks very much,

So there are two issues: a) DOS isn't supported and b) the floppy as a
boot device isn't supported. That will make it a very difficult sell for
mobo manufacturers. Can you imagine me buying a Linux PC with LinuxBIOS
and it crashing. How am I going to repair it then?
floppies are dead. What's wrong with a cdrom boot?
