 I got Debian working on Armada 7792DMT, 7400 and E500. all of them
worked nearly out of the box (with XFree 3.3 you had to configure a
little bit more than now). Only suspend to disk wont work with the E500,
but it doesn't work with Windows either, so not Debian fault (384 MB
RAM are to much for the BIOS I supose, maybe a Problem with APM). Even
the winmodem works fine, including faxing.
