  looks like it's still around:


  But it looks like it's in flux. At one time related to
the sourceforge project "FreeBios", which looks kinda 
dead now, but linuxbios is still used on a few clusters 
at LANL and maybe a few other places. Doesn't look like
much development has been done on it for a while.

  Sounds like a good idea that people have lost interest
