Hello all,

I'm planning on building an adsl2+ server with a Traverse Solos PCI
ADSL2+ card[1] on a Supermicro X7SLA-H motherboard[2].

The chipsets of the X7SLA-H are Intel 945GC + ICH7R which are listed as
WIP on "Devices supported in coreboot v3"[3]

What are the changes of getting Coreboot v3 to work on this motherboard?

What makes v3 'alpha'? I can't seem to figure it out from reading the

I consider myself an experienced Linux user but I have no hardware tools
for flash or debug. Would I be able to play with Coreboot and be of any
use to the community?

Btw, I am open for any suggestions regarding a better motherboard with
possible (future) Coreboot support. I'm looking for a small size,
relative low power, two core, 64bit system with a pci slot for the Solos
card. I've read the 'Supported Motherboard' section but it was last
modified at 6 July 2009 so that might be outdated.
