We currently run a set of systems that operator on DEC Alpha machines, these provide
a console level access which we use to configure a machine remotely via the console
port. Plans are afoot to migrate the systems running on the Alphas to PC (HP xw4100 machines),
we will still however have the requirement to access and manage the machines when the
main OS is down, select which kernel versions should be run etc.
Based on what I have read about Linux Bios it seems it would be perfect for this task.
Does anyone have any idea of the likelihood of the HP xw4100s motherboard being able to
support LinuxBios.
Many thanks
