As much as I hate to say it, this is probably the best way to go.  This will
put the OpenBIOS into a totally PC-BIOS-uncompatible track.  That makes
OpenBIOS just about useless to me personally in the short-term (an OS/2 and
WinNT user), but it assures a path that won't get OpenBIOS in trouble with
the law...
