it's still held together with rubber bands, there is work to do now to get 
linuxbios to do the right things. 

What you have to do right now by hand (wrmsr, setpci, etc.)
- get a video bios image
- Do some msr writes to correctly set fixed msr with extensions
- get the base address for gart (read vga card for this)
- set IORR1, and some other K8 northbridge settings based on gart base
- run testbios (newest one)

I think that's about it.
