So the onboard VGA works? Confusing..

yes, it is looking at address 0xfe000000, not at your bios image. Are you 
talking about onboard graphics or a pci expansion card now?

In which case?

what lines?

If your linuxbios image is 256kbyte and your graphics bios image is at the very
beginning of the linuxbios image, the address is 0xfffc0000. If your
LinuxBIOS image is 512k the address would be 0xfff80000. And so on.
