yes, indeed. Ollie Lho had linuxbios booting an sis 630 that immediately 
went into microwindows and then started up VNC -- in a few seconds. He 
demo'd this at ALS 2000. 

We are following on this work to build thin clients, with Plan 9 thin 
clients as one possibility, although X11 will be first.
