Yes, working as in: I have a working LinuxBIOS and I see VGA output of 
FILO, can type and modify the FILO boot line if I wish to , and I can 
boot Linux properly.
(Some stuff I have not yet working are: a LinuxBIOS logo (??) and X.  
Supposedly X should work again when I modify the ID in the mainboard code.)

No, I have *not* touched *anything* in linuxbios/src.
(I just verified this by svn diff to be sure)
