I have been having the "memory.c bad pmds" with a Tyan S2885

When Yhlu brought up the topic of LinuxBIOS, I thought he might be
suggesting that this would prove there are no problems with the BIOS
(i.e. the same problems would occur with LinuxBIOS as with the
motherboards built-in BIOS). Looking at the LinuxBIOS web site, I got
the impression (I may be wrong) that this was a Tyan supported effort.
If that was the case I was wondering why Tyan didn't mention LinuxBIOS
on their web site. It would make me more comfortable if this were a Tyan
supported effort. That's why I asked the question.

I'm just trying anything I can to get rid of the bad pmd messages.
