Porting LinuxBIOS to the AMD SC520
"In contrast to proprietary BIOSes, LinuxBIOS lets users tailor the system boot-up sequence to fit their exact needs. The Version 2 system we have shown in these two articles is modular and features an object-oriented structure that, in practice, has let us build compact BIOS images. Images smaller than 32KB are routine, even on complex systems such as 8-way Opterons with 32 PCI busses. LinuxBIOS also is portable and has run on 64-bit Alpha systems as well as PowerPC systems. A port to the PowerPC 970, a 64-bit system, is in progress."
