OK, these mobos are close enough to each other to share most code. Let
me throw out a challenge to this group. Make the bios image that runs
on each board *IDENTICAL*. You can figure out what each board is --
can you tell by which superio it is or something? -- and then case out
in runtime.

Why is this good? Because a vendor can see that with proper design, a
single bios image can support many mainboards -- even if the hardware
differs slightly -- thus reducing the cost.

We've talked about this for years, never done it. Is this the time?
