Which ones work best? Clover, Chameleon, Chimera (ie. a version of Chameleon), etc. Just curious what people are using with sucess. I'm using Chimera or Chameleon.

Clover and Chameleon are the most common.

I haven't tried Clover yet, but the new one is 64 bit. Does it still support 32 bit in the new Clover? What does Clover have over Chameleon? Thanks Delta....

Use Clover rL1050, it has both 32 and 64 bit support.
Clover can run EFI on non- EFI bioses, and has loads of fixes inside.
Clover rL1050 makes it possible to run andy's kernels on FX !

I've run Chimera and Chameleon with sucess on Phenom II x4, those bootloaders also emulate EFI on non EFI systems. I'm planning to get a FX with the Vishera core as it's a more effient cpu then Bulldozer or wait for a die shrink to the next generation.
