sorry didnt hit reply to all.

Ok thanks for the info, I guess I had better recheck the whole build
process and make sure I am building what I think I am.
Also I need to spend some time on seeing just exactly what linuxbios is
doing and the order it does it in. Not really a good thing to just build
code and expect it to work. I am not familiar with the BIOS boot process
having mainly worked on much simpler embedded systems.

The Com port is ok when booting normally from original bios.
