Those ones I'm not entirely sure. I do know that there are serious issues
with Mandrake 10.0 / kernel 2.6.?-mdk and the VIA KT400 / VT8235 chipsets.
Including noapic in the lilo boto string fixes some of the biggest issues,
but theres still some intermittent problems. Then again, those same
chipsets have issues in Windows aswell :)
