I'm going to be buying a 200MHz Pentium Pro and motherboard (probably
a dual-CPU) in the next week or two.  I know the Orion chipset has
some nasty bugs (like the 4MB/s PCI bus speed).

Has anyone discovered any horrible bugs in the Natoma (440FX) chipset,
or is it working well so far?

I also remember reading something about someone having quality
problems with SuperMicro motherboards.  Any opinions on SuperMicro
versus ASUS, WRT build quality, reliability, support, and speed?

Thanks for your feedback.
