[LinuxBIOS] AMD SimNOW question

You are right.  I saw that it needed the files under svn/.  So I moved 
the files into this directory under sources.  This was from the svn co I 
did for version 2950.    Could I use the tip of the tree for this or is 
it better to use version 2950?

Now it needs the patch for the compile problems, ld, etc..  for Fedora 8. 

Progress no matter how slow is progress,  I guess...................... :-)
