I may regret asking this, but what known limitations are likely to come and
bit me (especially on the i386 flavour of the system)?
I notice a problem with ISA network cards and a USB setting in BIOS which
can cause trouble, an issue with monitors going to standby and PCMICA model
problems (all fixable)...is there something else?
