It's tricky sometimes, but programming hardware is fun. :)

No problem, this is the only mailing list.

The G33/G31/P35/P31 chipset isn't supported, no. Please check the
Supported boards and Supported chipsets pages on the web.

What's worse, that Intel chipset is most likely so much work to
support that it will never be supported unless there is a strong
business case to do the work or someone has copious amount of free
time along with good hardware knowledge and a passion for reverse

Sorry to not give a more encouraging response. :\
