Bought a via PD6000 about two weeks ago. Using factory bios until I get 
everything else just right. One of the first thing i discovered the via 
box kept restarting, so I moved the hd to a tyan mb and tried booting. The 
tyan stopped with a kernel panic.

Got the via working and then built several versions of a 2.6.19 kernel.
The one that seems to work the best is where the cpu is called a "k6".
If interested, will email copy of the config file. (Or, if there's enough 
interest will post it).
