getting a Linux box up and running ... Means to me Run LILO. On my PC LILO
Boots 4 different OS's better than any multi boot solution I ever HAD.
(Win98 ,NT4 ,Win2k ,RedHat 6.1) have I forgot something.
So yes give me a LILO loading BIOS and You're work is done !!!
By the way LILO in ROM ?? sounds like the right place for it.
It will be a pleasure going into LILO code and changing :
mov AX ,BIOS_READ_BLOCK
move DX ,aBlockNumber
BIOS_ReadBlock( aBlockNumber ) ;
Then linking and flashing viola 4 OSs
About flashing Software. Does any one need an NT+GUI flashing Application I
have one with code - For flashing OnBoard PCI-connected Flash chips ( only
the address change same chip programming ).
