Well! That's a good thing to know...so this may be more of a research
project to boot Windows using coreboot on the Geode?
How would recommend attacking this if I want to boot Windows on the GeodeLX
using coreboot? Or should we just resort to those "other" bioses...
I would prefer not to because we print out POST/Low-Level codes on an ASCII
LCD display during bootup which is very nice for manufacturing.

The Geode platform is not ideal for this exercise. The VSA used by
coreboot doesn't support the VGA BIOS (only the minimal set of pci
config space emulation). It is assumed that a native driver would be
used. Some folks have discussed developing an open VGA BIOS for Geode
but no development has been done yet.
