Thanks for your reply.
Does this mean that X Server runs the BIOS of the VGA Cards if the card is
secondary display adapter.

X.org also contains an x86 emulator which may help, but if the BIOS

If the card is working as secondary Display adapter Even its BIOS will not
use the VGA Address range as it is already reserved by the primary display
adapter Am I correct?
