I gathered from the wiki that linux cant handle a totally
uninitialized pci bus and that linux is close to doing that. Im trying
to read the pci sources in hopes of being able to make linuxbios work
with my kt600 motherboard. So if linux 2.6.17 can already initialize a
totally uninitialized kt600 pci bus then i might start playing with
linuxbios. all thats left is figuring out how to initialize  the dram

things i hate about my linux pc:

1. it takes more than a second to boot up
2. keeps asking about filenames and directories
3. does not remember what i was working on yesterday
4. does not remember all the changes i have ever made
5.cannot figure out necessary settings by itself
