We have some contacts at Intel, but not SiS. From the Linuxbios 
perspective that's the key company here, right?

We would be interested in getting a quote from someone capable for 
supporting this board. Any suggestions or contacts?

I was told that the BIOS chip is a 4-Mbit SPI flash device. Is that big 
enough to work with (512K)? Would we be able to fit any system 
diagnostics (fsck, memtest86), tools (bash) or network support (ssh, 
vnc) into that size?
