You're very lucky. This logic board is so much better than the Rev. A
(older model). I have two of these older ones and Mac OS X is very
unstable on them.
Also, I can't have two IDE devices on the primary channel.
But I still don't have a very elegant way to boot NetBSD off of it's
own disk, and the bootloader still won't boot a "regular" kernel, I
have to compile it hardcoded to boot from "wd0a".
This is very strange. From what I remember, I didn't have any problems
on my B&W G3. I had to compile a custom kernel because of hardware
(ste driver) and efficiency (smaller kernel, smaller RAM usage)
requirements. Also, since I don't use a swap partition (bad for flash
cards), I had to change some stuff in the kernel, so it would stop
asking me for the root and swap partition device names every boot.
