Geode is the CPU/SoC series used in the system. Originally manufactured
by National Semiconductors and/or Cyrix, AMD bought the technology and
improved it. It's not exactly an "easy" CPU/chipset, but it has been
supported by LinuxBIOS since quite some time.

Is the bios chip of that board socketed or soldered on?
