I'm sure Ron, Eric and rest of the cluster gang will be happy to hear that.

IMHO the best thing you could possibly do for support of other AMD
product lines is to provide people like Hamish and I access to the
proper documentation for the chips, an agreement that allows the
generated source to be released under LinuxBIOS and an open line of
communication for some questions when we get stuck.

Do that and you will find your products will magically become
supported by the community who will then speak very nicely about AMD
_without_ a lot of additional effort on your part.

I do understand that may be a little easier said than done considering
your existing partnership with Insyde and General Software.

Thank for the info.  I'm really encouraged that AMD is looking at
official LinuxBIOS support for its products.
