I was trying to avoid Uniflash because it seemed dated and DOS-ish.
Granted I could probably get FreeDOS, but I've also gradually broken all
my floppy drives over the years...
From what I can tell Uniflash, OpenBIOS and LinuxBIOSv1 have all been
abandoned to a greater or lesser extent, yet the knowledge from them
hasn't been used anywhere else? Is LinuxBIOSv2 a from-scratch effort? I
think the chip used in this board was supported by /dev/bios, but I'm a
bit unsure as to the state/stability of that given the non-activity on
Is this board fundamentally different from P2B-L? I should probably also
mention that we have some pretty groovy-looking equipment at work that I
could possibly use if basic reverse engineering is required. Only
problem being my lack of hardware knowledge - there's something that
looks like an oscilloscope but it says "impedance analyser" and I need
to be told what to do with such equipment.
