I don't know _too_ much about this topic yet, so I might be wrong, but I
think the TPM chip doesn't actually _do_ anything by itself. It
can be enabled/disabled and configured/used by the BIOS though, and as _we_
control the BIOS in this case we could do all kinds of funny stuff ;)

As soon as I get that darn 440BX RAM init working I'll play a bit with
this stuff, I think.

There's the TPM emulator, http://tpm-emulator.berlios.de/, which will be
useful even if you don't have a physical TPM chip.
