[OpenBIOS] New power-up graphics BIOS.

Hello again Garvin,

at startup the conventional PC-BIOS searches (scans) for additional ROMs,
such as VGA-ROM.
It is then initialized. So a text startup copyright message of the VGA-card
would appear
on the screen (so does my old SPEA VEGA V7 card).
How would you overcome this "problem"?
I didn't have any ideas, because the BIOS needs int 10h for output
Int 10h will only correctly be set, if the VGA-BIOS is initialized.
Or would you prefer to program chip registers directly?
This wouldn't be very generic...

Bye for now
