So if I get this correct the rom has been flashed but it effectively has no kernel in it, this resides on the CF card. I guess this means that this card can then be switched to another machine and easily changed with another kernel to test changes. Am I anywhere near on the right lines yet ?

an open, widely used standard which has worked well for us." Can you explain this a bit, does it mean that its possible to some how redirect the rom from which the PC boots ? i.e. switch it to a CF adapter card ?
you boot linuxbios from flash, but the linuxbios payload comes from CF.
