Award BIOS Source code was illegally published quite a long while ago,
but it is not advisable to use this for any purpose, since it is
Award/Phoenix's intellectual property.

See http://www.openbios.org/project/rules.html

Since most closed source software is never reviewed by a huge amount of
community people, I am deeply convinced that you can learn a lot more
about techniques, concepts and implementation from the free firmware
variants that are out there, namely LinuxBIOS, OpenBIOS, uboot, gbios,
Proll, Tiara. Find the URLs at http://www.openbios.org/docs/links.html
