True. But vendors often hide hardware bug fixes in option roms.

Just FYI, we just now got an Nvidia agp card to initialize and work much
better with the emulator, in the agp slot, on the tyan s2885. We get the 
little nvidia startup message, and then the vga console works. 

We have a bit of fixup to do now in linuxbios for the things we found, 
including some MTRR and northbridge stuff. But it is nice to see it 
getting that far.
