I would like to make a suggestion. I am a newbie to the LinuxBios  
world. I love what I have seen so far. I am ok at C, know a little  
assembly, and would love to contribute to the LinuxBios community. But  
I am not sure how to get started. I have read just about everything I  
can get my hands on, but how do I go about developing a new bios for a  
board? In the FAQ's it talks about some things I would need to get  
started but where do I go from there. I have datasheets and all kinds  
of output from linux (dmidecode, lspci, etc.), POST card. Now what?
Do I just use the code from another board and alter it to my liking? I  
don't want to sound negative or upset anyone but I think alot more  
people would get involved if there was more developer (src)  
documentation. So, I am going to try to document my journey from point  
A to B. So the next person that comes along won't be as stumped?? Make  
sense or is it just me? Can someone tell me where I need to go from  

Thanks - Joe
