Hello from Gregg C Levine
Actually, yes it was posted to the list, and I did read it. You do

itself with the idea that the legacy bios on a machine can be replaced
with something that will boot straight into Linux, even faster then the
legacy bios, it replaced. (And that's my opinion only, Ron.) If I
remember correctly there are a few SiS based boards out there, which
have an alternate form of video output, which is composite video based,
but I don't remember which ones. Can you repost your message, but in
simpler terms? I think everyone else missed it, because of its original
