Yes, I guess the information (biosdecode) must be there, as I use Boch
BIOS with LinuxBIOS, but not LinuxBIOS only.
And interestingly, there is no option to make 32bit BIOS in
ADLO/bochs/bios/Makefile. I simply generated bochs/bios/bios.bin by
running "make" inside ADLO/
So I think the question becomes: how to get 32bit BIOS now?
