(I blame) sis630 and lack of APM (AMI BIOS r1.07)

I have had real problems with this thing.  No APM "incorrect signature
(0x0)" in dmesg.
Under 4.7/8 I can't get pcmcia working.  USB will not reset.  Actually
there are many problems since It does not know it has been asleep I
The disk controller under 4.7 says there is a bad cable (or "non-ATA66
cable") so it does not enable Ultra DMA.  Instead it falls back to
33mhz.  I have read other lists stating that the sis5591 ata controller
is new but backwards compatible (not) with the 5591.

Under 5.0 the only way to make it boot is to disable ACPI all together.
Otherwise while the disks are being probed it locks up.  So I have never
had fun with this thing.  Sis630 chipset.
pcmcia (02micro 6912 PCI-Cardbus Bridge) stuff seems to work a lot
better under 5.0.  It does not work under 4.8-stable.  I have not tested
the usb under 5.0 but under 4.8-stable it will work for a little while
and then stop.  You have to reboot to get it back.  I caught one panic
in dmesg but it was probably my program.   It talks to some sockets and
the network basically.  gpsd (GPS Daemon) does a terrible job listening
to ucom0.  I am using uplcom/ucom for serial communications.  I have to
run at 4800 baud.  I am not sure it is supported by either the device or
the driver.... but it works for a while.

Has anyone else had luck with this machine?  I actually got a hardened
version of it with 40gb disk (5400rpm), fire wire and integrated
802.11b.  But not worth the 1300 payed so far.  Is there anyone out
there that can help me out.  I am a little stupid.

Things seems a little more hopeful on the linux front.  But man I have
written some crappie mapping coordinate grabber that depends on bpf.

If this link works.....  Here it is.

So I was thinking about getting this instead.  But I am of course
worried about the sis650 chipset now.  My boss is trying to convert me
to using Debian and I just don't want it.  Any thoughts on the following
hardware or is it a total crap shoot?  I have looked at the Hardware
pages and cant find the sis650.

A really really cool machine....  Includes built int camera, bluetooth,
802.11b, s-video out and serial port!

I am not on this list so please respond to my email.
