The website is sorely out of date, and the source tree has just gone 
through a *major* overhaul. In that vein, the source for the epia 
version isn't functional (as I understand it right now). But will in a 
few weeks when it gets cleaned up. The website will be revamped when 
some of the volunteers (like myself) get to it. We've been really busy 
as well. I'm not nearly as knowledgeable in the arena here about the 
actual functioning of LinuxBIOS, but there are plenty here who are. I 
would suggest going through the mailing list archive as start. There 
was a great FAQ type submission a few months ago that helped me 
understand what was going on.
