That's really nice.

Great! Then we can support the Shuttle SS21T barebone with your code
easily. That way, people can evaluate and test LinuxBIOS with your
chipset even before the GA-2761GXDK is available for purchase.

Another question: How big is the BIOS chip of the GA-2761GXDK? If we
have 2 MByte, we can fit a Linux kernel with diagnostics in there and
enable people to boot a fully graphical Linux desktop from USB in ~8
seconds from power on. That would be a nice feature for marketing.
