Why is it needed? Linux can live with current bioses. There's no need
for 32bios. Linux can do that things itself. What is needed is 16bit
we already have a 16bit bios! and they work well enough. if you dual-boot
dos/Linux , fine stay with a 16bit bios, but if you only use Linux,
wouldn't you want a bios that was specificaly made for it.
