Stay away from the Intel Endeavour!! We have tested 2 of these, with
different SIMM sets and CPU's (P133 and P166), and an IDE-disk, and both
of the boards caused (easily reproducable) severe memory corruption
problems. We replaced it with an ASUS board and those problems were gone.

Someone suggested to use EDO-RAM i.s.o. normal RAM, which we didn't test.
