Thanks Ron. The documentation would do a lot of good to 
many in the forum for the new comers (including
Lot of queries should get resolved automatically.

The cvs seems to have support of lot of motherboards now, but I guess,
the knowledge/experience seems to be with the one who have supported 
those boards only.
If the implementator of LinuxBIOS for the respective motherboard 
spends even 8/10 hours to produce a document of his flow or Design, 
it would benefit a lot. To start with, If not very formal,atleast informal 
documentations can  be shared in the cvs from everyone or somewhere 
else on the site. Based on the various documentation , may be a good 
document could be produced and shared easily.

These are just suggestions, there may be better way or means to do it
