Default Linux-ready Firmware Developer Kit

The Linux-ready Firmware Developer Kit is a tool to test how well Linux works together with the firmware (BIOS or EFI) of your machine. The main component of the kit is a bootable CD, which you can download from this site. When this CD boots, the Linux kernel starts and launches the test application. This application performs a set of tests on your machine and then reports the results for interactive inspection. The test application also assists you in running some of the non-automatic parts of a firmware test plan. The idea is that you, as a firmware developer, validation team, or kernel developer, use this CD to run the tests against your firmware and Linux kernel.

Pretty neat, build by Intel open source group to test features on your BIOS for compatibility with Linux.
