I also have an EPIA 5000 mini-itx with an Eden processor at 533 mhz, and 256 mb RAM.
Did you get any info from via?
I have a problem but I cannot find anyone to help me.
During the first bootup process, I hit <esc> and choose option "4" in the menu (bootstrap menu);
This option avoids the DHCP look up. If I manually power off the unit, the unit skips the DHCP lookup, and continues loading the Fendora software.
However, when I software reboot the unit with a linux command shutdown, the unit skips my chosen selection and does a DHCP lookup.
Does anyone know how to solve this?
