Debugging the linuxBIOS code

My board has a 3v3-only PCI bus, so I have the same requirement. The cards I
have considered are listed below. My understanding is that the Micro-2000
POST-Probe [5] is the only one that can be powered from 3v3. It does not
meet your price point, I'm afraid.

I am about to place an order for the rather expensive Micro-2000 POST-Probe,
so anyone who can recommend something cheaper for a 3v3-only bus would be
doing me a great favour.

Best Regards,
