I a looking for a minimalistic
modification for the bios.
It should KICKSTART programs like the amiga.
It could be used as a bootloader so that
a game console could be build of a pc.
what do you think about that?
I already downloaded some mp3 player
for a special mainboard i think the abit board.
it can load mp3 files directly from a bios embedded mp3 player..
loads from hd (mp3s)

I can not see what you mean, as a bios can and does load a boot loader that can load a program or game console type OS if you want.
Why mod the bios to do these things ?.

You are not funny... because monthes after monthes, I am trying to program all I am able to do with a usual PC, but with a 90MHZ or even less. Are you just having fun of people like me or are you really doing serious stuff with your old pentium ?

Well, what kind of "serious stuff" do you mean? Wink
The most of my assembly programming I did on my Pentium 60 machine, including all the old versions of fasm, kelvar, and some more games and other DOS projects. And I got them working well even on my friend's pure 386 machine.

Sorry for digression, anyway. Wink

sylwek32: you should use a tripod or something Wink

TIP: I sometimes use a chair, a table, some books etc. when taking photos, videos...
