Have you seen this? http://linuxbios.org/Screenshots#LinuxBIOS_with_X_Server_Inside
It is a video of a computer booting into LinuxBIOS *GUI* from which you can set stuff up like in a normal bios. Very cool isn't it?
I gotta make sure my next mainboard has LinuxBIOS support cause it is lightyears ahead of the ordinary DOS-like looking BIOS. Finally some innovation in that area as well thanks to the Free Software guys!
Anyone has a LinuxBIOS supported mainboard? The list is here.
