There is devbios.

However, it is silly to limit yourself in such a way.

I have a FreeDOS bootable disk image I keep on my hard drive.  Whenever
I need to load (w/ loadbios) or flash (w/ amiflash) a new bios, I just
write that image, and my new ROM, to the diskette.  Sure all of my
development is done under Linux, but you shouldn't close yourself to
other alternatives.

If you get heavily into coding OpenBIOS, you will probably prefer MS-DOS
(or FreeDOS), because it is much closer to the BIOS on which you are
