Yes, it's already supported in V2.
ebay is a good source for other older boards supported in V2.

The VIA VB7001 (very similar to Epia-LN and close to CN) is ~$100.

located. The pc2500e is still being produced in Brazil. You might find
some distributors there. Everex also sells a system using a pc2500
