I'd be willing to bet it needs the recent fixes I sent to Dave Miller
for the newer OBP's. There's no kernel images with that fix yet, but one
is coming soon.

The v210 is a IIIi cpu, and it requires a newer PCI controller driver
that Dave has been working on lately. Maybe we'll get it working soon.
