[coreboot] ### Bios

Hi Ron,

What part would that be? Our kernel is a little over a meg and we have a
512KB flash. We are also using a FirmwareHub device so I think we need to
goto an LPC flash?

WE have also started some internal R&D to look at an open-source video bios
for the LX800....I'll keep the list informed as we move forward. I would
like to host this somewhere so people could work on it.

If you get the part this should work fine. Actually I have shoehorned 2.6
kernels into 1 MB in the past -- lzma makes it work.
