What I'm saying is that both of those CPUs probably won't work, since they are the newest CD0 stepping. Anything with an older stepping would probably work, though.
As an interesting note, the "E" is there to differentiate between the Katmai 500 and the Coppermine 500, with the "E" specifying the Coppermine. Also, there was a "B" designation added to the "E" that was used with the Coppermine 600 to differentiate between the 100MHz Coppermine 600 and the 133MHz Coppermine 600, since there was a Katmai 600 as well.
As for good S370 mobos, A name brand board with the VIA Apollo Pro 133 chipset is good. I had an ASUS mobo with that chip, and got a Coppermine 650 to 950. Tha VIA isn't nearly as fast as a i440BX or a i815, but it does the trick, and the ASUS had a chipset voltage adjustment which helped me get it to 147 MHz.
Anything decent with a i815 chipset is also very good. Don't know of any particular models off hand, but it really comes down to what is on Ebay, since nobody sells stuff like that anymore. Just dont get any intel motherboards, because they will not have any overclocking options at all. Also, stay away from the i810. It's essentially similar to the i815, but has no AGP slot, and is aimed at barebones systems, so it's pretty skimpy on the features (and consequenty, nobody made any good i810 boards).
