Because this is Intel motherboard, I can guarantee support for 
GNU FreeIPMI. I will get a sample board from Intel and start working
on it.

Tyan is closer to making another firmware release to get GNU FreeIPMI
and biosconfig 100% working on their mother boards.

I am just curious to know why you chose SE7210TP1-E for HPC clustered
