why set it to 0? ADLO+BOCHS+VIDEOBIOS will be a ELF program.
so you can put the ADLO to the anywhere, such as rom/harddisk/tftp server/
first, you can test the LinuxBIOS , make sure that it can run on your mb
Also make sure that the linuxbios can load the ELF kernel correctly.
and next you can replace the linux ELF kernel with the ADLO, patch the
rombios.c with
the serial patch. and try the next test.
BTW: what is your mb's type? sis630,or else?
