We are using 20+ MVME boards here so I am interested, 
MVME2400/2600/2700 to be precise. 

Right now I can test patches and not much more, I'm really 
short of time and fighting other issues. Among them my PB 
G4 from last December just completely failed (and Apple 
told me to bring it to a shop in this city that is closed 
for holidays until ... September 4th).
