Not yet! Right now, I don't think it'll even build, from what I've heard
there are still pieces of the patch missing (can anyone confirm this?).
I tried to build it, but the config file failed, and I've got too many
other things going to mess with it right now. But, even at that, I don't
think it's been tested yet, so get an extra flash chip or two before you
try (mouser.com and avnet.com both sell them cheap, and mouser usually
has my order here within a couple days). I hope the board has a
removable bios chip!
