FILO has been used on PPC for quite some time. For simplicity, that
version has been integrated into LinuxBIOS directly though. 

There is a GSoC project for porting Grub2 to work in LinuxBIOS. It will
be realized by Patrick Georgi <address@hidden>.

Maybe you guys can join efforts on solving this issue?

I would like to see FILO die. Which will happen once GRUB2 will work on
an x86 machine without 16bit real mode legacy BIOS.
