In a previous post Daniel Mackay indicated his success with a new Atom based 
server he set up.

I am pleased to see the success he had with the new Intel Atom board.

It would be good to hear if there were any issues with the chipset or NIC 
drivers.  Or did it work out of he box?  I know I would like to hear more of 
what he went through in setting it up.  Maybe Solaris just saw the chipset as a 
generic chipset and had no issues.

I have used the predecessor board but had to compile the NIC driver.  Intel 
says they are not supporting Linux on this new board you are using.  I am glad 
it worked for you.
