Hello all,

I am quite new to this MLL as well as LinuxBIOS itself. I
do know that there have been some discusions (2 yrs ago)
about this, but those seemed to drift away a bit.

AMD came out a few years back with a tiny SBC that they
called PIC (Personal Internet Communicator), as one of the
first boxes they tried for their 50x15 initiative. Anyway,
I have one, and I want linux on it, but since it comes
with a WinCE-Ready BIOS, installing any other OS on it
depends on either installing it as an nk.bin OS-Image, or
installing a new BIOS on the box. Since the first option
seems far fetched... hence here I am.

Can anyone shed some light on weather LinuxBIOS is
supported on these boxes? Howtos?

Assumming it is not, yet. Where can I start, to be able to
port it? What kind of information do I need to gather to
port LinuxBIOS myself?

Thanks so much in advance.
