The point was, is it a proprietary BIOS from a mfr of the 
video/motherboard?  I got the impression we were talking of copying a 
binary into the project, and wanted to know if it was a copyrighted and 
proprietary work.  Or did I miss the point?  The issue is that just 
because you bought the board doesn't mean you have the right to copy the 
BIOS code, unless the mfr is specifically giving us the license to do that.
