I don't know of anyone one who has managed to get serverworks
to give them documentation at this point.

Several. The hardest one is the memory controller, but for a new

I have worked primarily with the supermicro p4dpr. Based on the intel
E7500 chipset. It has onboard 10/100 and onboard gibabit.
Depending on what you are doing we at LinuxNetworx might even be able
to sell you some support.
