Hi all,

General question:
I have been googling OpenBIOS, LinuxBIOS and FreeBIOS a bit, but I'm a 
little confused about the connection between them. Perhaps someone can 
clarify this for me?

Specific questions:
I have a Lippert Cool RoadRunner II (CRR2) board, consisting of a 
National Geode (GX1), a CX5530 and a 256KB Flash BIOS. It is set-up with 
a compact flash card (connected to the primary EIDE on the board).
I would like it to boot up directly into Linux or RTEMS (*fast*). With 
the current BIOS, I have boot-time (reset to bootloader start) of approx 
6 seconds.
Any recommendations?
Should I stick with the current BIOS? Should I use one or the other 
Any experience with this chipset-combination?
How much work would you think is needed to get it to work?
