That's fine with me.  I don't want to split hairs.  I was just surprised to
see my two Tyan boards (s2895 and s2892) in different categories, since they
are _very_ similar.

1. Tyan 	 Thunder K8WE (S2895) 	 AMD K8 	 AMD-8131T, NVIDIA
CK804 	 SMSCR LPC47B397		AMD OpteronT 	 Socket 940 	
2. Tyan 	 Thunder K8SE (S2892) 	 AMD K8 	 AMD-8131T, NVIDIA
CK804 	 WinbondT W83627HF	AMD OpteronT 	 Socket 940
