Not according to this.
And think of how much _better_ it would do that if you ran LinuxBIOS.
You mustn't have tried very hard (or at all) to upgrade your BIOS, to
LinuxBIOS.. so, as you've so colourfully put it, I'm calling bullshit here.
I think I'm honour bound by logic, not be lectured on my open-source karma
points, from an email which was typed using a machine where each keystroke, has
used a propiatery BIOS.
It seems a little.....
And more to the point... why haven't you gone to ebay/komplett and bought a
motherboard, which can be upgraded with LinuxBIOS... if you feel *so* strongly
about this issue?
That also seems a little.....
Or rather ... very interesting, pot ... kettle.
