I see :) So that's what I did wrong. How many of these values are actually
used by linuxbios? For instance, I had baud_rate set to 1200 and dual_core was
off; yet the system booted just fine with 115200 baud on serial, and I could
see both cores on this dual-core cpu board.

I can't really seem to find any documentation about all the settings that are
possible with lxbios; most seem straightforward enough, but is there
something out there that describes each field?


  boot_option = Fallback
  last_boot = Fallback
  ECC_memory = Disable
  baud_rate = 115200
  hw_scrubber = Enable
  interleave_chip_selects = Enable
  max_mem_clock = 100Mhz
  dual_core = Enable
  power_on_after_fail = Enable
  debug_level = Spew
  boot_first = HDD
  boot_second = Network
  boot_third = Floppy
  boot_index = 0xe
  boot_countdown = 0xfa
  slow_cpu = off
  nmi = Enable
  iommu = Enable
