Looking for a bit of guidance here:

at.cpp: Most of the 486 BIOS versions I've left to add are of the 128K variety (compressed, BootBlock etc.) that will either only show a blank screen or boot into the BootBlock BIOS at the moment.
Should I add these or wait for the ones already present to have their chipsets emulated?

pc.cpp: What are the criteria for classifying a computer as "working" (removing the MACHINE_NOT_WORKING remark)? I'd like to go through the NOT_WORKING ones and check those.

at.cpp: Are these criteria applicable to the 286 machines as well? If yes, I'll test them as well.

"Working" in a PC context means you can install DOS onto a hard disk and run games and applications.

Go ahead and add everything, there's no telling when the chipset emulation will get worked on and in the meantime having the ROMs in MAME means they won't disappear.
