Being a very interested but very raw newbie to the whole "world of" LinuxBIOS, please excuse me.
The Tyan Thunder K8W (S2885) is listed at linuxbios.org as a supported motherboard. Although not listed itself, would the new ("New" as per the Tyan website.) K8WE (S2895) also be a supported motherboard? The reason I venture to speculate is that the S2895 appears to be an "updated" version of the similar S2885.
Thank you for your precious time and valuable undivided attention.
