I have heard of it.

That's great news Christophe, if you need any help just ask. I don't think
anyone is currently working on this processor/chipset. We do have support
for the Intel 3100 chipset. I think that is the newest Intel chiset we have
support for, so that code may be the place to start. The Intel 3100 is
supported by Ed Swierk, he is a really smart guy, and may be able to offer
some help if you have any questions, as well as any if us on the mailing
As far as the processer we have several Intel embedded processers confirmed
Intel® Mobile Celeron Socket 479 FC-BGA
Low Voltage Intel® Pentium® III Socket 479 FC-BGA
Intel® Pentium® M Socket 479
Hope that helps.
