I am thinking along the same lines. My primary candidate is NForce 430
since MCP55 is already supported. But that could of course mean
absolutely nothing at all. Just because there is working code for one
NVidia chipset it doesn't mean that code will be easy to adapt th the
430. But one can always hope. :)
