I have done a lot of work on the GX1 platform, I also have a kindly 
loaned GX2 platform from AMD here, but my GX1 work is for a paying 
customer :), so that is taking priority ATM - I am not sure what the 
situation is with the newer processors - it appears as though there is 
third-party chipset support (SiS, if I am correct), and their docs are 
not necessarily of the highest standard IMHO. </END RANT!>

If they are still using VSA or VSA2 on the newer chips, I can give you a 
heads-up - it can be a trite tricky.
