We tried applying the patch that enabled the HT1000 with FILO to
seabios, but it didn't make a difference.

It would have been nice to boot directly Coreboot+SeaBIOS instead of
Coreboot+SeaBIOS+FILO.  It would have made system administration

Since the box is now in a data center (or on its way) and I don't have
one...  It will have to be a future effort.
