I have been working on getting LinuxBIOS running on an Arbor EmCore
i6352 Single Board Computer,
http://www.arbor.com.tw/mini/emcore-i6352.htm and currently have the
BIOS working well booting the Linux kernel off of a special partition on
a flash IDE drive on the motherboard.

I am currently looking into the changes I have made to LinuxBIOS to
merge my changes into the latest so I can submit them.

The main changes I have had to make are to do with on-board memory and
multiple onboard superio chips, and initialisation of the onboard
graphics adapter in the simplest fashion possible.

The company I work for is looking at getting this software into a new
embedded product which will be used for resource tracking.
