I'm a little bit confused.
Could it be, that Linuxbios override the ram sections?
It seems that vgabios.c in mainboard/via/epia-m do the job.

What about the VGA_LEGACY options from freebios, I can't use these 
options. I get errors by make a ./buildtarget via/epia-m because of, the 
options are not in Options.lb under /config.
