I found the issue with epia-m and vga. I am now succesfully booting
my epia-m with filo and fc9 - everything seems to work the same as
with the factory bios (except coreboot is faster).
The problem is related to the wiki site at:
It has an incorrect command for extracting the vga bios. When I use a
correct command - for example:
dd if=/dev/mem of=video.bios.bin.4 bs=65536 count=1 skip=12
Then the extracted vga bios boots fine and enables vga console.
