I have a SIS 530 board that I'd like to add support for. I'm not to the 
point where I can though. I do have the complete datasheet for the 530 
chipset so that would probably help in developing it. In reality though 
my main problem is finding documentation that adequately describes how 
one would go through the process of building linuxbios for a machine. 
The source tree seems really convoluted to me at the moment, although I 
haven't spent much time getting deep into it because I'm still getting 
other parts of the system working, and the LinuxBIOS part will be a 
"feature" or nice perk if I get it working that is...
