Not rumor, it is definate.  At least 4.2+ and 5.0 work without a hitch.
In fact, they work better than most intel or serverworks chipset based
systems as they comply better with the MP spec.

One gotcha..  Make sure that the bios is set to 'MP SPEC 1.4' (not 1.1) and
that 'PCI USE APIC' is on.  The AMD developer boards (Tyan Thunder K7, which
went on sale on Tuesday this week) have had various different sets of defaults
for these with different bios revs, so check them.
