Add Tyan to that list.

Support documentation--HOWTOs are always nice. There are so many possible 
combinations of mainboards and variatous revisions of different mainboards 
and flash parts that it's impossible for any single party to test them 
all. If you get around to building and installing LinuxBIOS for your 
machine, we'd like to hear about your experience and details about which 
parts work.

And you should add Tyan ( to your list. Dr. Lu has 
contributed a lot to the project and the S2885 has shown to be a very 
capable workstation and server mainboard.
