Very old.  I think 5200s work now, and there is no serial speed restriction.

I'm about halfway done with the ethernet driver.  Every PCI card that I've
thrown at the box has worked.  L2 cache works.  The parallel port works.
Onboard SCSI works in synchronous mode.  The little box is very stable,

Unfortunately, most of the code isn't in-tree yet.  I've made a patch against
-current available at for those
so inclined.
