I tried with friend laptop. It didn't give anything. Maybe I just can't use
serial cable and minicom :( I hope better debug next time. Superio  is
w83627hf in both mainboards (ms-6178 and ms-6337)

Kernel config (I am no sure if it's the same but it is small) is minimal. It
boots with proprietary bios and it is just for testing. I had no success
with filo either. It is used with ubuntu dapper sources. I'll try to attach
it this week.

Last two are pci cards. Not necessary just now.

lspnp: /proc/bus/pnp not available
might help if I change some settings of proprietary bios.
