I meant this situation is exactly what it is designed for.
Sorry. I misunderstood.
I am also assuming the Via C3 has the variable MTRRs, that may not be a correct assumption. The Intel book says P6 family.
Very good question what does the C3 have? I recall the strange clones not following intels variable mtrrs.
Hard to get this out of Via, they don't do datasheets for ordinary folks, but posts on the newsgroups seem to indicate p6 compatibility in some versions anyway:
From a post in linux.kernel: cat /proc/cpuinfo:

I'll try the XIP_ROM_SIZE etc tomorrow.
