What makes you so sure that the 8200 chipset is not supported? Of  
course I have read this
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=124458, but I have
found this too:

On other places I could read that the only differences between 8200 and 9300
are the smaller manufacturing process, clock speed and number of shaders.

Here it is even mentioned explicitly
