Hi, Alexei,

Thanks for your posts on DK8-HTX. I am just starting working on this
mainboard these two days. From what you said in your email, you modify
several things I think, and most of them must be modified by lxbios, I
try to summarize your work:
1 serial console baud_rate -> 115200
2 max_mem_clock -> 400MHz
3 boot_first ("HDD"), boot_second and boot_third ("Fallback_HDD").
I am not sure how to achieve the third one. Is it also in cmos?

And another question is that I don't know how to dd a 36K Video ROM as
you said. Do you just enlarge the size of dd?
such as this?
dd if=/dev/mem of=vgabios.bin skip=1536 count=72

Is that all the things you make LinuxBIOS run on DK8-HTX? Thanks for your help!

Forgot to mention that to see the serial console output I also changed
the baud_rate CMOS value to "115200"--since just this value was
defined in the LinuxBios Config-s and I had set my serial console
client (kermit) to wait connection just on this rate.
