Not yet. This seems a good idea for the next step of our work.
I have mainboards from Soyo, DFI, Mycomp, and Eurone
all with flash on
them that I can work on.
I today contacted Soyo asking where I could find Eteq (chipset on some
of their MBs, including the one I have) and if there is anything I
should know outside of what information they might give me (if they

Oh yeah, has anyone checked out Corel's new
Netwinder computers? They
look really great, no chance in the home market though, of course they
know that. They're selling them at www.corelcomputer.com
and I was

site today and apparently the BIOS in

the bios flash. But that's nice anyways. Alpha machines have 1MB of flash,
too. Such machines would allow to keep a full blown open firmware

have a specific Subject addition and a reply-to line. Sorry for my
