[OpenBIOS] Hello

Hi everyone.  Looks like there are just a few people working on the
project?  Anyway, we're working on an open source BIOS at the Advanced
Computing Lab of Los Alamos National Lab in Los Alamos, NM (USA,
http://www.acl.lanl.gov) for our Linux clusters.  We have Linux booting
from Linux and a few other things like that, and you seem to have started
the project from the other end.  As several of our workers are students
(including me), most of our work will be over this summer.

Does anyone know where good "BIOS Writers' Guides" are?  I know that Intel
used to have these, but I can't find them now.  In particular I am looking
for some way to write a BIOS for a 440GX.  Also, has anyone figured a way
to recover or prevent bad BIOS flashes (using something like a BIOS
emulator)?  It would be nice if there were an easy way to make sure that
the BIOS we write will work.

Thanks a lot, and I hope to be hearing from you.
