Hi all,

I've gotten LinuxBIOS working without much of a hitch, but I'm trying to 
get the VGA console working.  I've been looking through the email 
archives without much success, then I found this page:


I have a Via Epia ML5000 board.  My question is specific to this part, 
found at the above URL:

/If you want to use the onboard VGA chip, you have to do the following 
in additional to the CONFIG options described above. /

/1. in MB Config.lb You need to specify for your onboard VGA /

/device pci 9.0 on # PCI

/        chip drivers/pci/onboard
                device pci 9.0 on end
                register "rom_address" = "0xfff80000" #512k image
                #register "rom_address" = "0xfff00000" #1M image

Is PCI 9.0 the correct value for the Via Epia-M onboard CLE266 video?  
Is there a way to find out, such as lspci?

What about the "rom_address" field -- Can someone explain what this is, 
and how to set it properly?
