I am not currently working on it, but have began learning about the SeaBIOS
and the shim loader to support booting FreeDOS and running many DOS
applications.   I would like to assist anyone who is working on an open
source (i.e. SeaBIOS based) BIOS compatibility layer to load on a UEFI
system lacking such support.   Or if such project already exists please
direct me to it.

Thank you,
