What board goes with what Mac?

Alchemy, Montana, Tanzania. These are all code names for different Macintosh logic boards. With last week's discussion of the L2 cache problem with Mac OS 7.6.1 and Alchemy-based Macs, several readers have asked me to supply a list of Mac (and Mac clone) models matched with which board they use. Does anyone know of a web site or document where this information is listed?

Update: MacFixIt readers provided the solution almost immediately! (Thanks, Fred Kinder and Jerry Britton.)
a. The PowerPC Mac Hardware Info Page has this information for Power Macs.
b. The Macintosh Evolution page (mentioned once before here on MacFixIt!) covers similar ground in a useful collection of tables.
