well this was my argument in the begining, we should allow this BIOS to support "REAL" bios calls like int 13 and int 10... if you include basic BIOS functionality, you can allow any "decent" operating system to startup... including LILO
Ahh but if I remember back at the beginning of the list the point of openBIOS was to get rid of the BIOS calls and boot 32bit OS's in 32bit mode, the though being that most OS's don't use the BIOS calls, except when first booting..... Of course that concept can deliver a whole new selection of problems... I'll leave the rest to you .. ;-)
