Well, it is a onboard graphic chip "cyberpro 5000"

Mmmh, I think LB does all in the right way.

The right device is allocated, the image is copy and the emulator is 
entered, now the question is.
Why fails the emulator. It seems, that there happens nothing.
Remember that. There is no debug output, but it should.

So, what is wrong.

Is it the 12.4, which eventually block something. Or is any other stuff 
not right.

I think the 12.4 is the problem, because if I try the image with 
testbios all seems to work fine. But I have to disable the 12.4 totally 
before. That means command=0 with setpci send to 12.4
After that, there is no I/O or MEM anywhere allocated.

If I do a boot know with the current config and disable the VGA stuff, 
all is done well, but the 12.4 device has a MEM+ shown with lspci.

So I think, that causes the problems with enabled emulator, because if I 
done a testbios run in that state, it fails too ;) with rare debug 
output (ca. 10 lines)

Question is now, in which state of LB is for 12.4 MEM allocated, while 
it is disabled?

i.e there are two other devices on 12.0 (12.1/12.3) and these ones are 
disabled, too. and this works fine.
