Some discussion about the possibility of a freeware 'GNU' BIOS
was casually mentioned on the Linux kernel mailing list last week.
Talk about it escalated, and a mailing list was quickly formed.
After a few more days of ideas, it seems like a very good possibility
and some people just hell bent on getting started.
What we are looking for now are people with a high degree of knowledge
about the low-level workings of the x86 PC architecture, and real mode
programming experience. Please join the mailing list and offer what help
Also understand that many Linux people are involved with this, but the
purpose is a COMPLETE BIOS replacement for use with all Intel x86 OS's,
not just some new boot loader.
