nope. it is binary only vga bios. we have no control over it. it is why I
don't like this solution. It is bit of black magic to get it to work.

Did you try to boot with normal pc bios and then warm-boot into
linuxbios/adlo? see if it helps. It might give you some tips.

umm are keyboard and mice connected? if no, I would connect them.

umm what's at /dev/hda did you put there linuxbios or something?

overall BOCHS BIOS will try to read MBR from /dev/hda and boot it. I would
put there lilo and configure it for serial console. Then u should be able
ot se if it reads MBR correctly and boot lilo.
