It depends exactly on what you are doing; in OpenBIOS the lower-level 
stuff is handled in C/ASM while the higher level stuff is handled in Forth.

Note that the main entry.S for OpenBIOS is currently tailored to pick up 
information from QEMU so you'd need to tweak this in order to get it to 
run on real hardware. I think Blue was hoping to look at this at some 
point, but never got around to it :)
