[LinuxBIOS] I give up -- time for a new plan.

I've been researching the IDE/DMA/Linux issue that appears to plague the
VT8235 southbridge. Seems there is _no_ reliable fix for this issue,
which has been known to exhibit itself even in Windows if you're using
the old/stock via drivers. Even if I do get the LB issues figured
out, the DMA issue (as far as I can tell) is _unfixable_. Reliability
is a huge thing for me (hence the use of Linux). The Epia board is
bound for Ebay.
Here's the big question:
Can someone recommend a _NON-VIA_ small form factor motherboard
(mini-itx, preferrably), that has all the usual goodies
(IDE,USB,VGA,serial, etc) that is known to work well with LinuxBios?
Naturally, one without a VIA chipset?
