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 :)
