 As far as I know, there are only 2 boards from the computer systems 
group of Motorola (Phoenix, I've been there 1995) which do support
OFW: Atlas and Ultra. I have the Atlas Board here, but am unable to 
install OFW (I have a legal copy) because I have a BETA-MMCG Firmware
running :-|  - Beware of testing systems :-)

 I do not have an knowledge about the MTX Board - likely subject to 
be changed when I contact my Motorola-freaks here in germany :)

-current yet.

 Darn, I need to re-write/enhance my NetBSD/PPC-FAQ.
