Yeah, the Intel 440 bx chipset (aka the piix4) is very well supported,
as far as I remember my Gateway tech days anyway.
In your standard kernel config, just turn on all the piix (n) tuning
stuff and you're sitting pretty.
The piix3 has some issues with having a UDMA hdd connected to the piix
3, since the piix3 only support PIO mode (last time I checked) you end
up having to down-rev.
By and large.
It's all good.
