How long do you think will it take in hours to get a stable release of
this chip? What parts do you need to fix to get the system stable?

What about specifications from Intel, will they help? Or are they
useless anyway due to NDAs?

What about the other two chipsets I mentioned: Intel 945GM and AMD LX800
Is the AMD LX800 booting properly?

I know, this question is not of great interest. Is it possible right now
to boot an old Operating System like Windows XP using ADLO and
effectively use it afterwards (except of the ACPI)?
