--Cyber 9397DVD works with default framebuffer OOTB
--PIIX4_smbus will refuse loading because this is an IBM system, to prevent serial eeprom corruption.
--CS4239 chipset on ISA side. See http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/CS4239 for information regarding enabling this chipset and http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/CS4610 regarding the PCI side.
Confirmed working with Debian Stable (Wheezy) kernels 3.2.x and backports 3.12.x. you MUST use the i486 kernel-- Pentium II and below do NOT support the 686-PAE kernel. The easiest way to get around this if you want the least amount of RAM usage is to compile your own kernel. (2014-03-04T00:36:07+00:00)
