I'm using that very board with a pentium-m 750. Everything seems to be
working out of the box with ubuntu 8.04, including dvi out to the hdmi
port of my tv. The only bad things about the board I've encountered so
1. The included cpu fan is very noisy. I've used a fanmate to slow it
down to acceptable levels without the temperatures getting scary.
2. The onboard video has a maximum xv image width of 1024 pixels, so
while the processor might well be able to manage 720p decode you can't
actually display it. This isn't a problem for me at present but I
suspect it would be fairly easily fixed with a pci nvidia card.
If you need any more detail just ask.
