FWIW, I have a Tyan Tomcat I, and it works very well with NetBSD.
One advantage the Tyan has over an Asus (I have one of these also)
is that they have _8_ SIMM sockets, which is a nice feature. Well,
at least my Tomcat I has 8, the other models might vary. If you have
some low density SIMMS (like 4MBs), you can still get 32MB or more.
