This is a RD project book around LinuxBios, Freebios, OpenBios. It explains BIOS and boot mechanisms. It describes how to setup, build, customize, and burn a CMOS with your own Linuxbios free bios on
This document is an HOW-TO which describes a protocol
to carry out a working Linuxbios prototype on VIA EPIA mainboard
in a constraint milieu.
But much more than a HOWTO this project book : 1. develops reasons why solutions are promoted or demoted;
2. lets indications for other case studies based upon experiments;
3. explains indeep Linuxbios internal mechanisms;
4. proposes various architectures; 5. goes forward for Linuxbios developpers.
