Huh? How do I do a register dump of the eeprom with awarddeco? That  
would be for  getting the pci rom. I already have the the pci rom, and  
an AMI bios not Award. But, that doesn't matter to coreboot because it  
won't load a pci rom for a device that it can't detect. I wonder if  
there is a way to load the pci rom before the bus scan. I'm thinking  
the original bios does that, and the pci rom acually turns on the  
device and sets up it's registers. Anyone want to take a shot here???

Thanks - Joe
