I don't know of anyone one who has managed to get serverworks
to give them documentation at this point.

Several.  The hardest one is the memory controller, but for a new
chipset there are several other chips that need support as well.

I have worked primarily with the supermicro p4dpr.  Based on the intel
E7500 chipset.  It has onboard 10/100 and onboard gibabit.

Depending on what you are doing we at LinuxNetworx might even be able
to sell you some support.
