Thanks for the suggestion, but I've got some custom hardware that
I'm trying to find a close match for, and it has an MPC106 PCI
bridge/memory controller.  The EST SBC740 board has an MPC106 as
well.  Also, many PReP reference boards and PowerPC VME boards
(except for those from MCG, which use the Raven, etc.) use the
MPC106, so I'm hoping LinuxPPC running on one of these will be

The IBM boards use PCI bridge chips specific to IBM, as far as I
can tell.  Someone please correct me if I'm wrong...
