That's very interesting.  When you say you don't have the S3 working,
do you mean that you can't get a virtual terminal on the display or
that you can't get X Windows working?  If the former, do you use a
serial console?

The PCI bridge in the NC900 is documented, at least slightly (see my
earlier post for the link).
