For the most part it's fine, it just needs the floppy driver / ps2
driver (and maybe some others) fixed up to not allocate regions
that pnpbios already reserved. Other than these issues, it seems
to be working well. It's certainly handled itself ok on all my
test boxes (Even the weird compaq with the fscked up pnpbios --
it claims to have pnpbios, yet when you call it, you get feature
not supported return codes. cute.)
