You can add a 'me too' to this list. I have tried 2.0.7, 3.0 live cd, and the
3.0.2 test cd. None of them work on a Via Tech PD6000 motherboard, with a C3
chipset. I have extra that I can give access to if anyone would like to tackle
this issue. I have also tried with NetBSD 3.0, xen 2.0.7 and no luck (which is
my preferred platform)
