Ok, no problem.

Just now the graphic mode still very simple, it just has Xvesa running
with Matchbox and rxvt. It starts in ~ 8s, but I have some ideas to
improve speed.

Other problem is the space, the 2MB BIOS flash is completely full, I
removed almost everything from kernel, including printk support. I
will apply the LZMA patch in kernel, maybe I will get more space.

Yes it is fantastic, all we need inside a BIOS.
