Yep, definately. Shouldn't be too much hassle to port this board.

Jason, please post the output of 'lspci -tvnn' and 'superiotool -dV'
here (run as root). Also, post the irq_tables.c file which is generated
when you run 'getpir' on the board.

With that information as a starting point we'll be able to make a first
patch for your board.

Do you have a possibility to flash your BIOS chip (either an external
programmer or you can use the flashrom tool (please post 'flashrom -V'
here so we know if your board might be supported).

Also, is the BIOS chip in a socket or soldered onto the board? Do you
have a null-modem cable to grab serial debugging output from LinuxBIOS

Thanks, Uwe.
