To me "BIOS" nowadays is a word for what ever thingy shows up after
pushing the Del key or what ever key else, after turning on the
computer, to get into the thingy.

To show a green screen, I used this picture, I made this year in my
flat [1]. In the shelf there's a book "PC INTERN 2.0" from Data Becker.
Once upon a time, I've written software calling BIOS routs, something
reasonable this time :D.
