I've bought a VIA EPIA PD-10000 with 1 GHz C3-Nehemia
processor.  I have to confess that it's running FreeBSD
right now, but I booted DragonFly BSD once (just out of
curiosity) and there weren't any problems.

That machine is my private DSL router (it has two NICs
onboard), firewall and file server which is running 24h,
so I wanted a low-power system with still enough CPU
power to fulfill its tasks.  The EPIA fits that nicely.

Best regards

PS:  If interested, here's dmesg (from FreeBSD 6), pciconf
and sysctl hw/dev output:
