I have heard of it.

That's great news Christophe, if you need any help just ask. I don't think
anyone is currently working on this processor/chipset. We do have support
for the Intel 3100 chipset. I think that is the newest Intel chiset we have
support for, so that code may be the place to start. The Intel 3100 is
supported by Ed Swierk, he is a really smart guy, and may be able to offer
some help if you have any questions, as well as any if us on the mailing
list :-)

As far as the processer we have several Intel embedded processers confirmed

Intel® Mobile Celeron Socket 479 FC-BGA
Low Voltage Intel® Pentium® III Socket 479 FC-BGA
Intel® Pentium® M Socket 479 

Hope that helps.

Joseph Smith
