I've gotten OpenBIOS a bit further last weekend, seperating architecture 
dependent and independent code and getting the dictionary from a fixed
address in flash. Still missing is the code to load the forth dictionary
right from an elf segment.
On the interpreter front I have all the forth words working that are
needed for the interpreter, and the interpreter loop already reads and
outputs things, but thats about it. 
Being busy with LinuxBIOS during the week made me enjoying the sun
rather than my suns on the weekend :-)
