I am new to this list and have been emailing Ron a few
times about the SiS530.
Ron sugested that I use FILO for my project and
I have had a trawl around to find filo, and have
downloaded a BZ from a fairly unreputable looking web
site. Does anyone have the "official" website
address at all?
Also Ron said to configure LinuxBIOS for the 530, but
I thought that it was not supported by the LinuxBIOS
I understand (basically) the idea of having payload
code (which is filo from your advice), but I think I
may need some more explicit instructions: do I assume
correctly that I need to flash my current 530 board
bios with LinuxBIOS with a payload of filo and have
filo point to boot off HDA1?
Then this leads me onto another question: can I pull
a bios chip from another PC and use that to flash LB
onto to use with the 530, or are some regions of the
BIOS chip un-writable and/or mobo specific? If the
latter then would it not be safer to get a small DoC
and flash that, as I only have one 530 Mobo.
