I think you are on the wrong list. OpenBIOS is a project to build
Forth-based firmware to *replace* BIOS on PCs. This forth-based
firmware already exists on several non-PC platforms, including
Sun Microsystems' SPARC and Apple's & IBM's PowerPC systems.

If you're looking for BIOS, you probably won't find much here.

In general, AMI and Phoenix are in the business of selling you
a customized BIOS after you tell them exactly what you need.
But you'll have to talk directly with them about that, not us.
