These three should be some kind of PC chipset IIRC ...

Maybe it's 53C700 ? That's definitely a SCSI controller ...

Let me guess ... 82586 or 82596. Looks rather similar to the hardware
used in my RM200 (except for the R3000 CPU ...). The problem is that
support isn't likely unless one of the developers has a machine to
experiment with. Ralf has a RM200C (PCI, R4600PC-based) and I have an
older RM200 (ISA/VLB, also has a R4600PC CPU) but I haven't even seen
a R3000-based SNI machine ...
