Why would one need a FAQ on Athlon based systems? It's just one more i386.

I run a Socket-A Athlon (also 750) in an Asus A7V motherboard.
Kernel with options I686_CPU, set, go.

According to the AMD webpage (and they do have loads of docs) a Socket A
Athlon will take 90 degrees Centigrade, a Slot A only 50 degrees
Centigrade though.

HPT370 is supported by NetBSD as was mentioned in an earlier thread. It's
in pciide, so you need a kernel that includes that. As "unixfreak" you are
able to compile yer own kernels, aren't you? It's quite documented.
