new config language.

I have tried the romimage in AMD solo 7 MB, and the LinuxBIOS can boot until
Etherboot. So the ROM image I built should be OK.

The Tyan s2880 has two CPUs and supported dual channel DDR. The Opteron CPU
is for Server/workstation and The cpu for AMD solo is for desktop

Any advise.

yes, many.

I'm not sure what's wrong here. You may have to start checking the object 
code to see if it is correct.

For what it is worth the new config tool is almost working ... just trying 
to get the sizing of the romimage correct.

Hopefully I can start paying attention to linuxbios itself soon, now that 
I can bulid it.
