Hm, I don't know much about HDMI. Would that need some special init in
the BIOS? Do we have support for such things in LinuxBIOS?

Both mainbaords are not yet supported, sorry. Neither are the chipsets
they use, so it'd be pretty much work to support them.

If you are willing to buy some other mainboard, one of the supported
ones (http://linuxbios.org/Supported_Motherboards) would be a good
choice, or have a look at the ones listed here:


These mainboards are _not_ yet supported, but making them work would be a
lot easier as they use already-supported chipsets.
