Hello everyone!

I would like to get my ECS K7S5A working with linuxbios! I noticed that this 
board in not in the list of supported mainboards, so is there any way I can 
help you guys to support it without destroying it?
Anyways, this is what lspci says:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 735 Host (rev 01)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5591/5592 AGP

00:02.7 Multimedia audio controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS7012

//-----the folling components are pci or agp devices:----->
00:0d.0 Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq 5880 AudioPCI (rev 02)

00:11.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C 
(rev 10)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV15 [GeForce2 Ti] (rev 

And, besides that, I got another question; is it possible to boot the kernel 
out of the eeprom (that chip where the bios is stored at) and mount the root 
filesystem over NFS? I'd Imagine it would be quite a lot of work to upgrade 
the kernel but that would be pretty neat....

thanks in advance!
