    Consider me Pre-Pinged !

I've already e-mailed Luc and the list, I guess you haven't caught up 
with your
e-mail yet :-)

There is definately a need to add the following 2 lines to


Current status of my epia code is as follows :-
     It's booted ! All the way though LB, loaded a kernel via filo from 
the hard
disk and let me login. There are issues with the speed, the boot sequence
seemed painfully slow. This could be for any number of mis-configured settings
at my end.

I also seem to have some spurious output before getting to the following line
LinuxBIOS- (date) starting...

which seems to be part of the northbridge debug lines.... I haven't 
tracked down
whats going on here yet.

At present, I'm trying to clean up the southbridge code.
