Does anyone on this project have access to a rom burner and a pile of roms? If I were to write a ROM, who would I send it to for burning?
we should most certainly select a standard hardware configuration/chipset and develop a single bios for that and then specify a standard firmware interface that we can port to other platforms. =)
I have a 386DX (fully functional) and a 386SX/EGA (which can be activated for a modest ammount of money). Also a 486 class system will soon become available, it will require $80 for a new processor... I reccomend an older platform because it would be far simpler to write a firmawer for it. and it still has all the important features that we need. =) Anyway... This project can't get anywere without the neccessary toolz. =(
I would most eagerly like to discuss how this project should be arranged.
