Intel's VT-d technology includes and IOMMU.  I *think* you can now purchase 
motherboards which include it but I'm not 100% sure.  I wouldn't know which 
models either, too be honest.  Xen-unstable already has preliminary support 
for this and uses it to do PCI passthrough to HVM guests.  VT-d for PV guests 
is not yet supported.

Knowing Intel there probably is / will be a list of VT-d boards on their 
website at some point.

AMD are also bringing out IOMMU hardware but I know less about this.


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
