No, although it is possible that there might be some in development.

However, there is LinuxBIOS support for the Opteron & AMD64 via the
AMD-8000 and nForce4 chipsets:

The AMD-8000 chipset has excellent support.  Many AMD-8000 chipset
Tyan boards are very well supported.

The nForce4 chipset source code was recently released by Yh Lu from
Tyan.  This code appears to be stable for nForce4 based Tyan boards.


Dirk also asked about nforce2 chipset & Asus A7N8X support:

Would it make sense to port the nForce4 code to nForce2/nForce3 and
Opteron/AMD64 code to Athlon 32?  It seems like a viable option for
someone with the time, experience and motivation.  Comments?
