I’m Serious! You’re not the BIOS of me.

They mean it! This looks really cool. Not the frying yourself part, but the creation of custom BIOS’s. I got to thinking about how to install software that runs as soon as the machine comes on and is pretty hardwired. Also, about how you can compact standard things like ethernet drivers and serial modem drivers into firmware. I ended up at the lanl site, but along the way hit openfirmware.org.
Fun looking stuff off of there.

I am curious about why the lanl guys need to pull the flash and throw in the DiskOnChip while it is running. Isn’t there a programmer for the disk on chip? I obviously will need to research this more.
